Welcome to the City of Lockport, New York, and our new DISCOVER LOCKPORT website. We’re so glad you came to DISCOVER the many things we have to offer for your enjoyment.
Lockport is a 21st century city with its roots in the early 1800’s. Just stand on “The Big Bridge” in the heart of town and you’ll see why – the Erie Canal. Lockport literally rose from the banks of this engineering marvel.
We are located less than 45 minutes from Buffalo and the Buffalo-Niagara International Airport. Niagara Falls and Canada are also less than 45 minutes away.
Explore our website to see all that we have to offer, including the newly-restored gates in the “Flight of Five” locks from the early 1800’s adjacent to the modern gates on the Erie Canal.
Check out our many fine restaurants, specialty shops, artists’ studios, golf courses and the brand new Cornerstone CFCU Arena. Don’t forget to view some videos about the canal, hear the “Erie Canal Song” and read about our history.
“As Niagara Falls are the greatest natural wonder, so Lockport, its locks, and the portion of the Erie Canal adjacent, are considered to be the greatest artificial curiosity in this part of America.”Stewart Scott, Canadian Traveler, 1826
