Tourism Thunder Bay has reopened the Terry Fox Visitor Centre after a year-long closure due to the pandemic.

The organization says in a social media post that during the closure, two new displays for Fort William Historic Park were added. The facility is along Highway 11/17 north of Thunder Bay.

The building offers tourism information and restroom facilities adjacent to the statue and plaque honoring Terry Fox, who was forced to end his cross-country "Marathon of Hope" nearby in 1981. The site also offers overlooks of Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant.

The facility will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through the end of the year. It's closed from 12 to 1 for lunch.
