This spot is a favorite all summer long with . . .
Chippawa Creek is a popular local swimming area but beware of the strong current. Strong swimmers only.
It is here that the Niagara River and Welland River meet. Chippawa was a thriving commercial center at the turn of the century. Ships could unload and have their cargo moved overland and then loaded on other vessels at Niagara-on -the -Lake.
They then continued through Lake Ontario through the St Lawrence eventually to the Atlantic Ocean.
That all ended with the building of the Welland Canal. Chippawa now is a desired residential area with a thriving tourist area.
