The City of Thorold is a community of `18,000 along the Welland Canal, just south of St. Catharines. Thorold is famous for the Welland Canal’s twinned Flight Locks where “ships climb the mountain” of the Niagara Escarpment. Flight locks #4, #5, #6 & #7 are truly engineering marvels.
Today, you can trace the route of the Second Welland Canal, by following the Merritt Trail along its route through the City.
The community has extensive light industrial lands along the eat bank of the Welland Canal and in the south along Canboro Rd (#20), providing lots of employment in the community.
