Penman’s Dam on the Grand River

Penman's Dam on the Grand River - Paris


The historic Penman’s Dam was built in 1918 by the Penman clothing company to provide waterpower to run their mills. But it now provides a perfect spot to rest and relax with a picnic, take in the faux waterfall, and must be seen at night.

Every evening at dusk Penman’s Dam is lit by spectacular colours. Known as “Lighting of the Paris Falls”, you can best view it from the William Street Bridge.
