The Soo Locks Park: the natural way to enjoy freighters in Sault Ste. Marie.
Make your way into the Soo Locks Park. Here, you can view informative displays, watch freighters pass, and enjoy a leisurely stroll through a beautiful park. 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.
