Take a Train Ride
Join North Bay residents and other tourists on one of the scenic trains in North Bay's Waterfront Park. The trip is well worth it for the magnificent view of Lake Nipissing!
The Municipality of Callander
The Municipality of Callander lies in the southern part of North Bay. It's an excellent vacation destination because of its beautiful marina and two beaches. Once there, be sure to go exploring on the Kate Pace Way, a trail that takes you from Callander to the city of North Bay.
The Future of North Bay
By 2011 North Bay will have a new community waterfront park, which will feature more carousels and botanical gardens, a children's area, and a longer train ride along Lake Nipissing. Very exciting!
Sights to See
Don't miss the Gateway sign between North Bay and North Ontario, the CF-100 display in Lee's Park and, one of the rarest sights you'll ever see, a volcanic pipe known as Callander Bay.
