Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site of Canada

Lock 26 - Lakefield
Year after year, the Trent-Severn Waterway, meandering 386 km along central Ontario, continues to create unique experiences. After each spring thaw, the Waterway's historic locks and canals open, linking a passageway so magnificent it has been named "one of the finest interconnected systems of navigation in the world". Those who visit, reminisce long after leaving. They can't help but remember the impressive locks and lofty legends that make up one of Canada's most spectacular waterways.

Parks Canada advises that floating debris may cause potential hazards and that some navigation buoys may be out of position or partially submerged due to high flows currently being experienced. Furthermore, areas above and below water control dams should be avoided due to strong currents.

As always along the Trent-Severn Waterway, Parks Canada monitors water levels and flows at various locations and responds to multiple needs including human health and safety, recreation, municipal water supply, protection of fish and wildlife habitat, hydro generation and flood mitigation.
