Water Garden Pavilion

The Water Garden Pavilion is a central building of the revitalized Thunder Bay waterfront, supporting key activity areas located at the base of Red River Road and public portions of the Park as a whole. The Pavilion provides washrooms, changing facilities and a warm-up room/rest area for adjacent recreational uses, such as the splash pad/skating rink, children’s boat pond and skateboard park. There is a café/restaurant with panoramic views of Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant. 

This space is adjacent to the Mariner’s Hall, a multi-purpose space planned for
hosting events, exhibitions and summer day camp activities. The Pavilion is designed as environmentally sustainable and has achieved LEED Gold certification. It includes such measures as passive heating and cooling, solar energy, green roof, and recycled content building material. The Pavilion also incorporates all mechanical and storage requirements of the adjacent water/ice features as well as the ice re-surfacer.
