To the East of Soo Locks Park is Brady Park. Situated on the grounds of the original Ft. Brady, you’ll find a number of informative displays detailing the early years of Sault Ste. Marie. A local favorite is the lighted fountain, which in the evening, dances in time to music. Flowers and towering maple trees compliment the Park, as does the “Torii” –a beautifully designed traditional Japanese archway. This was given to Sault Ste. Marie by Chase S. Osborn, Governor of Michigan from 1911 to 1913, and a former resident. The Torii was brought from the town of Ryuo, our sister city in Japan.
