Blockhouse Island is a year-round magnet attracting people from around the world. This island gem just out into the mighty St. Lawrence River at the eastern edge of the world-famous 1000 Islands.

Enjoy a stroll along the island’s Riverwalk, bring a picnic lunch or visit the island bistro. Island amenities include transient and overnight docking, boat cruises and souvenir shopping.

Blockhouse Island gives the visitor the best vantage point in the 1000 Islands to view the gigantic cruise and cargo ships plying the waters of the International Seaway shipping channel.

Travel to Brockville and venture into our historic past with a tour of Canada’s first railway tunnel accessible from Blockhouse Island Parkway.

Come by car, boat, bike or on foot to experience the calming and peaceful influence of this beautiful waterfront park.
