Description & Services
The Salt Marsh Boardwalk 
The Boardwalk extends along the back of the northern side of the causeway into Lockeport, offering a close up look at the delicate salt marsh ecosystem that has formed in the back harbour. The boardwalk continues from here across the northern edge of the Volunteers Athletic Fields and empties into the Lockeport Elementary School yard at the west end of Beech Street. 
As part of a 3.2 km walking loop, the Boardwalk has information signs posted along its length, as well as a gazebo where visitors can take a seat and enjoy the crisp salt air. 
The best time to view the salt marsh is at low tide, tide tables are available at the Crescent Beach Centre.  
Dawn can also be a good time to view the marsh.
