This is a significant water-based recreational area that combines international-standard competitive water sport facilities with recreational rental and social opportunities. Set in 411 acres of parkland and 272 acres of water, the facility has hosted flat water events for the 2015 Pan Am Games, as well as world championships in multiple canoeing events.
Another impressive aspect of the WIFC is that it’s the home of the Welland Flume – two independently controlled, moving water, variable speed, training tanks outfitted for rowing, canoeing, kayaking, and dragon boating. Here athletes can train in the off season and experience an on-water feel to help them maximize their performance.
