The City lies between Lake Erie and the Niagara River, offering 50 kilometers of water access. So if water fun is what you crave, look no further than the
sandy shores of Fort Erie. Surrounded by miles and miles of sandy beaches and the clean, cool waters of Lake Erie and the Niagara River, the town is a
water sports hotspot.
During the winter months, hockey and figure skating take over the ice at Fort Erie's renowned Leisureplex. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, and skiing at the
nearby Western New York ski resorts is also a great way to beat the winter blahs.
The City also boasts 25 municipally operated parks and the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, with picnic facilities and nature trails. The FE
Friendship Trail and the Niagara Parks Recreation Trail attract cyclists, joggers, walkers and in-line skaters. Motorized vehicles are prohibited.
Discover the quiet side of the city by cycling or walking along the newly developed Fort Erie Friendship Trail. When completed, this trail will become
part of the Greater Niagara Circle Route and the Trans Canada Trail System. This 13.6 kilometer scenic pathway is paved and safe for cycling and ideal for
walking, jogging, and rollerblading. The trail ends at Historic Fort Erie where it meets up with the Niagara Parks Commission Recreation Trail.
Niagara Parks Recreation Trail
Fifty-six kilometre of paved trail runs parallel to the Niagara River from Historic Fort Erie to Niagara-on-the-lake. The trail was designed, built and is
now maintained by the Niagara Parks Commission. Developed in 1986, this 35 mile scenic pathway is connected by nine bridges and divides into 4 scenic
sections, each with its own history, adventure and unique beauty. Cyclists can expect a one to two hour ride for each section. The trail is ideal for
walking, jogging and rollerblading, too.
For further information on the trail, please call 1-877-NIA PARK.
