A new gazebo and interpretive centre overlooking the St. Clair River will celebrate its grand opening on May 14.

The structure, named “Nwebin Wiigwaamens” is located at Sarnia’s southern boundary near Aamjiwnaang First Nation.

“The River Road Trail is the latest installment of our ‘Connecting Communities’ project aimed at connecting Bluewater Trails’ system with the rest of Sarnia-Lambton,” said Bluewater Trails chair Jared Fedora. “Together, with our partners in Shell and the Government of Canada, and with the support of Aamjiwnaang First Nation, we have taken a great step forward.”

The site marks the final piece in the project linking Sarnia’s recreational trails with the St. Clair River Trail, which runs south to Port Lambton.

The octagonal gazebo will offer walkers, cyclists and joggers a place to stop and enjoy the view from the grassy bank on River Road, between Marlborough Lane and LaSalle Line.

A grand opening celebration will be held Thursday, May 14 at 3 p.m. For more information, contact [email protected].
