Cecil Depeau Bay Shore Park, situated atop the Niagara Escarpment, offers a breathtaking view of the Bay of Green Bay. Scenic hiking trails follow the ledge of the escarpment – a geologic formation created 400 million years ago by an ancient sea. A breakwater and boat launch facility with protected harbor are also located within Bay Shore Park. Launching ramps and docks provide access for fishing, sailing, and boating enthusiasts.
An exciting playground is a tremendous asset to park visitors and campers. Nautical-themed playground equipment and a huge wooden ship provide the backdrop for children to have a fun make-believe high-sea adventure!
Bay Shore offers an open air shelter and an enclosed building for rent for family reunions and gatherings of all types.
