DeCew House Heritage Park

The DeCew House Heritage Park is a beautiful passive park located on DeCew Road along the shores of Lakes Moodie and Gibson.  This jewel in Thorold’s park system contains the remains of the DeCew House, the final destination of Laura Secord’s journey during the War of 1812.

The remains of the Decew House are all that are left at this historic landmark.


The DeCew House Heritage Parking parking lot is a great place for hikers and bikers to access the Bruce Trail as portions of it run through the 6.5-acre park and further into the Niagara Escarpment.


Large, mature trees provide ample shade throughout the park and on to the Bruce Trail.  This park makes a lovely location for a family picnic.

The DeCew House Heritage Park was the site of Thorold's War of 1812 Bicentennial celebration and festivities.  This stunning park is often requested for use as a wedding location or for wedding photographs.

The DeCew House Monument provides an interesting backdrop for photographs.
