Welcome to Lockport

The City of Lockport, NY grew from the banks of the 19th century engineering marvel, the Erie Canal. Today, Lockport is a friendly community with rich, historic roots. We seek to blend the old with the new to preserve the past as well as move ahead with the changing times.

Lockport, New York is located in the center of Niagara County approximately 18 miles east of Niagara Falls USA. Our website not only offers the important government and service information that business owners and residents seek, but we have also created a tourism section for visitors and locals alike. Explore Lockport attractions, Erie Canal activities, specialty shops, the Lockport Locks & Erie Canal Cruises, the Lockport Cave & Underground Boat Ride and so much more when you visit Lockport and take a walk through history.

The City of Lockport

Please drive safely this morning as Lockport Firefighters are collecting donations from passing motorists around the city.Tomorrow morning from 7am - 11am we will be asking passing motorists to drop a donation into fire boots to help "Fill the Boot" for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

All funds collected through this Fill the Boot event support MDA’s life-enhancing programs, including support groups and clinics, and assist families with medical equipment and costs. They also make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle diseases can enjoy a week of fun activities while gaining confidence and independence. Muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and other related diseases take away people’s ability to walk, move, smile, talk, and even breathe.
You can help.

Cash and checks made payable to MDA will be accepted.
