Gravelly Bay - Sugarloaf

Beach

Gravelly Bay sits at the southern end of the Welland Canal, near downtown Port Colborne and H.H. Knoll Lakeview Park. The waters here have been important to the community for a long time. The City of Port Colborne’s former name was even Gravelly Bay.

This is a very popular destination for boating, fishing, wakeboarding and other watersports. Many local companies offer rentals, classes, and excursions here. The park offers great views of the marina and the lake for people who prefer to stay on land.

In response to the growing popularity of Gravelly Bay, Swim Drink Fish started a regular water quality monitoring program here in 2019. The Lake Erie - Niagara hub is supported by The Niagara Coastal Community Collaborative and funded by Environment and Climate Change Canada.

If you want to get involved in water quality monitoring, just email erie-niagarahub@swimdrinkfish.ca for more information.
