The next park is Sherman Park. It has a great beach to play at, grills to cook on and a nice jungle gym for the kids to play on. There is also a basketball court and beach volleyball. It is fun for the whole family all day! It’s also a great spot to watch freighters pass by or to catch sunsets.

Finally for parks we have Project Playground. If you are looking to get some energy out of your kids for a while on your trip to the Soo, Project Playground is great! It is a giant jungle gym and playground equipment that will keep your kids entertained until their heart’s content.

The first attraction is the Soo Locks Boat Tours. These tours run about 90 minutes and are a narrated boat ride that takes you through the Soo Locks.
