“A first stop in Port”

Port Colborne Visitor Centre
Reviewed 18 September 2016

My advice would be to stop here first. Port Colborne has so much to see and offer both visitors and locals that often we miis the little gems that is here. Find out what here is to see and do because there is something right around the corner that you might miss.

The Visitor Centre is nearby the first bridge. After leaving the bridge, it's at our first left. There is ample parking there. It's situated in an old house that looks quite attractive!

When I entered inside it, a lady welcomed me. I asked for a map and she gave me two of them, different from one another. She was able to give me a lot of info about the Canal Days. I left happy with all that information.

A plaque indicated that this house existed since 1852. It used to be the Humberstone Hall , a Municipal Hall Building for 118 years for the former Humberstone municipality. Quite neat!

As you can see from the picture, the City of Port Colborne has made good use of a surplus stone building when they placed the visitor centre here. The quaint stone structure has been completely redone inside and is chock full of helpful pamphlets and giveaway maps, not just for Port Colborne, but also for surrounding areas and for the province of Ontario. The people working in the centre were very helpful and informed. Even the washrooms are lovely, clean and accessible. Great place, with a cute café across the street and a gorgeous display of flowers in the public gardens behind it.
