Consultation has concluded

Fisherman's Park West - Thunder BayThe Thunder Bay District Stewardship Council, Lakehead Region Conservation Authority, and the City of Thunder Bay Parks & Open Spaces Section are working together to develop a concept plan to restore wildlife habitat, rehabilitate Lake Superior’s shoreline, recreate coastal wetlands, and provide passive recreation opportunities at Fisherman’s Park West.

The goal of the project is to restore the park by returning the area to a more naturalized condition by planting trees, shrubs, and perennials that are native to our region. Fisherman’s Park West boasts beautiful views of the Sleeping Giant and offers an intimate experience with Richardson International’s Grain Elevators – a staple of Thunder Bay’s economy. The naturalization of this area will provide valuable breeding grounds, shelter, and forage for migrating waterfowl, birds, and pollinators, while also creating a space where the public can explore and enjoy the beautiful natural landscape.

Please take a look at the Concept Plan documents (Fisherman's West Concept Plan, and Fisherman's West Pollinator Concept Plan).

Comments were received via a survey on this page until March 1, 2021.

In an April 2021 update, the results of the public consultation, and plans for the restoration, were made available by the Lakehead Conservation Authority. Thank you again to all who shared their views!
