Port Weller is bounded by Lake Ontario (North Boundary), Read Road (East), Linwell Road (South) and Walkers Creek (West Boundary). Port Weller East & West are divided by the Welland Canal. Port Weller West has a significantly higher population than Port Weller East because of industrial and agricultural development on the east side, such as the Welland Canal, Port Weller Drydocks and local farms.
Port Weller contains vast green/play-space such as: 11 Parks, half with creeks or streams; 3 Tennis & 4 Basketball courts; 4 Baseball & 6 Soccer fields; 6+ Playgrounds, 2 Elementary schools, 3 Churches.[original research?]
A unique and little known attraction in Port Weller East is the 9/11 Memorial Park located on the Lake Ontario shoreline just north of Happy Rolphs Bird Sanctuary. The 9/11 Memorial Park is home to a variety of trees, each planted to commemorate a Canadian lost in the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center. To access the Memorial Park, take Lakeshore Road to Read Road and follow Read Road north to the lake.[original research?]
