Located at 931 Lakeview Drive, the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre is the home of Tourism Kenora.
The Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre has recently acquired various display components to enhance the delivery of its mandate to become not only a Travel Services Centre but a Tourism destination in itself.
Outside the Discovery Centre you can experience our interpretative forest which depicts our natural species with signage in English and Ojibway. This signage explains the uses of the many species by the First Nations Peoples. The Discovery Forest is truly a grass roots culture experience.
The Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre explores the many aspects which make Kenora so unique – come discover for yourself!
