- An outing at Nickel Beach in Port Colborne is a perfect way to spend a lovely summer day. The waters of Lake Eriemeet the shore on this idyllic beach. Walk along the sandy stretch, enjoy a dip in the clear waters, play some games, or relish a picnic basket on the shore.
Due to a request from the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP), parking on the beach will not be available this year to accommodate the habitat and breeding grounds for the Fowler’s Toad, an endangered species in Ontario.
The City of Port Colborne has prepared for this change with upgrades to parking facilities and the expansion of parking lots to accommodate 260 new parking spaces. Now there will be even more space for visitors to park and enjoy the beach’s beautiful sandy shores. SplashTown Niagara is back for another summer of action-packed water park fun!
There is no gate entrance fee, and pedestrians or cyclists will have free access to Nickel Beach. Information on parking reservations
