  • An outstanding place to watch the entire city only looks very beautiful in the night time. Because in night time anyone can see the lightend up lights of the houses from top of the hill crest. It gives a different view in day time. Due to scorching sun which makes the scene more wonderful. Anyone going to thunder bay and does not go to it that means he has missed the important place to see. It is a must to see who lives to have a clear view of the complete city.
  • Greta place to sit and enjoy the view of the giant. Constantly being used by groups to enjoy the summer days. And even more people in the winter to sled. a great place to have a coffee and a snack, or spend the afternoon enjoying the sun.
