BROCKVILLE – Staff at the Brockville Aquatarium are celebrating a milestone.

On Friday (Sept. 1), the attraction will see its 100,000th visitor pass through the gates at the $26 million facility on Broad Street.

“We have strived from the start to create a series of regionally significant experiences that tie historical stories to activities visitors can go and experience in the 1000 Islands today,” said Frank Bondi, manager of visitor experience.

“Thanks to the generosity of our incredible team of volunteers and our dedicated staff, the Aquatarium has delivered on this promise and we look forward to being able to share all our new developments as we move forward together.”

It was March 1, 2016 the 27,000 square foot Aquatarium welcomed visitors.
