The development of the North Bay Waterfront required the construction of a sheltered harbour for small craft. Rock that had been excavated when the NORAD underground site was built was moved from near Trout lake to the waterfront and dumped into Lake Nipissing to form the breakwall in the photograph.
The small boat marina has spaces for 250 craft.

Different looks at ordinary things.
The old Chief Commanda served as a cruise boat on Lake Nipissing for many years. It is now dry-docked on the waterfront and serves as a restaurant and fresh pickerel market.
It was replaced by the “New Chief” in about 1974.
Happy Earth Day Mr. Seagull!
Water, rock, air, living thing.
Best we look after the place!

The colours add to the excitement when you’re 3.
You wouldn’t expect to find fish here.
Did you bring your rod?
There is a gorgeous house behind the white picket fence.
This white picket fence marks the front yard of an exquisite white house.
Elegance in an older neighbourhood of North Bay.
