Come and visit this ingeniously designed contemporary lock and dam, that have been built on either side of Darvard Island. Pathways winding through the underbrush provide opportunities to observe the plants and wildlife of the site. Picnic grounds and observation points for watching the pleasure boats come through the locks are located at various points around the island. Come while away some pleasurable time under the shade of our magnificent trees. Visit the impressive multispecies fish ladder then stroll along the interpretation trail and explore the exhibit at the superintendant's house to discover the history of the Saint-Ours Canal.
