Trail to replace old promenade

Fort Erie council voted Monday to approve a $600,000 project through the old Erie Beach Amusement Park which completes the Frienship Trail through the town. Work on the trail section, which will follow the concrete promenade along the shoreline, is scheduled to begin Aug. 7. A 40-metre section of the trail will recreate the look of the old promenade, which ran from the concrete pier near Bardol Road in the west to Waverly Beach in the east.

Do you remember what the promenade was like before sections started turning back to stone and sand? Send me an email or post a comment below.
