THUNDER BAY - After being closed since mid-March, Fort William Historical Park is reopening to the public.

The announcement was made on Thursday that the park is open effective immediately and will be operating between Wednesday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

New health and safety measures have been put in place, including practicing physical distancing, reduced visitor capacity, hand sanitizer stations, and increased frequency of cleaning.

“Since we have been able to return to the Fort, staff have been working hard to prepare the site. This has included de-winterizing all the exhibits and buildings, grounds maintenance, installing a number of new health and safety measures, and adjusting the site, programs and services to help ensure the health and safety of our staff and visitors,” said Sergio Buonocore, FWHP’s General Manager.

“We look forward to welcoming back visitors to enjoy the unique experience that Fort William Historical Park has to offer.”

The entrance fee has also been reduced to $5 per person and guided tours will be available for groups of 10 or fewer people.

Virtual tours are still available on the Fort William Historical website.

The park has been closed since March 16 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
