Fort Erie Waterfront Strategy


Fort Erie is in an enviable position, with its entire southern and eastern boundary defined by the water’s edge.  In 2016 the Town undertook the Fort Erie Waterfront Strategy, to create a vision of a network of Waterfront Parks and Waterfront Windows that welcome everyone to enjoy the lake and river in a way that respects the natural features, neighbourhoods, heritage and shoreline conditions. The Town's outstanding waterfront resource will be a catalyst for development that contributes to Fort Erie’s economy.


The Waterfront Strategy is presented under the context of seven Frameworks, including Natural Heritage Features & Hazards, Waterfront Parks & Windows, Ways to & Along the Waterfront, Destinations & Tourist Attractions, Culture & Heritage, Neighbourhoods and Boating Access.


The Fort Erie community contributed many hours and hundreds of ideas to the Waterfront Strategy, helping shape the initiatives that evolved through each Phase of the project.


Implementation of the Waterfront Strategy will be a long-term effort, as outlined in Report PDS-68-2017.
