A second look.

The CPR station near the waterfront, long unused, has in recent years been refurbished and is now the home of @Discovery North Bay.
Removal of the rail yards allows one to see the waters of Lake Nipissing from its parking lot – if you stand on tip toe.
It is a lovely classic building. Three cheers for those who worked to save it and make it a living classroom. It is this kind of thing that turns a town into a community.
For years the Waterfront was cut off from the downtown of North Bay by railway yards. The railway has removed all but one track and a pedestrian tunnel and walkway has been built in the past year. Easy access to the Lake is now available.
The walkway ends at the lakeshore at the most sensuous concrete steps I’ve seen.
