The famous Wawa Goose is a landmark recognized worldwide. The word Wawa means “wild goose” in Ojibwa, and so this 28 foot goose is a fitting symbol for the community and one of the most photographed landmarks in North America.
From downtown, Wawa Lake is clearly visible. A walking path spans the west shoreline starting at the north end of Broadway Ave. and connecting the south beach. A large Rotary Blast Hole Drill Rig marks the start of the path as a tribute to Wawa’s mining past. A series of historical plaques lining the walking path offers visitors a glimpse of Wawa’s past.
