Cascade Creek is the last of Erie's three original creeks. Its western location saved it from being completely compromised by urbanization. Cascade Creek flows along the bayfront parkway and into a delta behind the western dock. In 1813, Daniel Dobbins established a shipyard at the mouth of the creek where the flagships Lawrence and Niagara were built. The military shipyard later became a commercial boat building center. The western dock, where U.S. Navy "Yard Ferry Class" ships were built during World War II, continued as a shipbuilding and repair facility until the 1980's. Cascade Creek itself has enjoyed a renaissance with local environmental groups having improved water quality to the point where trout have returned to the watercourse.
