  • Great view of the lake. Really fun play structure for the kids. Lots of green space and hills to play on. Try and find Thunder Bay's longest slide.
  • Great view of the giant. Easy to get around the construction.
  • The best place in town for a great view of the Sleeping Giant year round. Popular with families and fitness clubs. Great sliding hill in the winter.
  • Beautiful Outlook over the city and the beautiful sleeping giant with beautiful gardens and playground for kids and some events take place in summer such Canada day celebrations and even bagpipers playing.
  • Always love coming to Hillcrest park for the views of both the city and the Sleeping Giant. Highly recommend coming here for the sunrise views, as they are the best in the city. There is a play structure for kids, and lots of benches to sit and watch the view. My only complaint is there tends to be a fair bit of litter around the park.

Where to stay in Thunder Bay

The city center doesn't offer much in the way of accommodations, with the relatively industrial surrounds featuring little to interest tourists. Most visitors stay north of the center along the waterfront, where Water Street and Cumberland Street offer the biggest range of motels and inns. Here, you'll have views over the city's marina and port, giving you a sense of the region's maritime culture. Arthur Street West, which sits at the entrance to the airport, offers a range of motels and chain hotels perfect for visitors just passing through the city.
