  • I would recommend making a stop here. This lighthouse is on Huron Boardwalk in Wawatam Park. The walk is short and easy and the little park is very cute and has some fun small things like a sundial...

  • This is a nice small park with water splash area for children. A few historical markers give a small bit of history. A carved wooden native American chief stands at the entrance of the park. Plenty of benches to sit and relax. The walkway to the lighthouse is even ground and not a very long walk. Be sure to ring the old rail station bell!
  • We accessed the lighthouse through the Huron Boardwalk right next to the Wawatam Park. The park has beautiful flowers, benches, sundial and a bell to ring. The lighthouse is very photogenic and does not take a bad picture. It is still a working lighthouse. Large parking lots near and less than 3/10 mile walk to the lighthouse. Definitely worth a stop of your in the area.
