CAUSEWAY PAVILLION

The Causeway is located on Hwy. 538 in Algoma Mills and is adjacent to Lauzon Creek.  Visitors and residents can take advantage of a public boat launch to Lake Huron as well as plenty of free parking.  Access to the North Channel of Lake Huron provides a great opportunity to explore the Voyageur route, which was once part of Canada's first highway system.  The Channel's open water is dotted with island clusters inviting exploration.  Outdoor public washrooms and a picnic area are provided at the Causeway.  The Causeway is the site of our yearly Canada Day Celebrations and fireworks.

The Causeway site is a historical landmark for the area.  A large dock once stood there and was used by a few local companies in the late 1800's and early 1900's to transport freight to southern Ontario.

Algoma Mills became the Canadian Pacific Railway's (CPR's) major coal delivery port for the Algoma District with 200,000 tons of coal moving across the docks during a single season. 2

0 The CPR. was so active in the area that they purchased land and had plans to construct a 300-room hotel that unfortunately fell through and was moved to Banff, Alberta and constructed as the Banff Springs Hotel.

Interpretive panels at the Causeway Park relate our history and a locomotive replica created by a local artist commemorates our past.
