Carillon Canal National Historic Site
The Carillon Canal is a phenomenon in itself - fed by the water of the Ottawa River, the lock opens a 200 tonne guillotine gate to enable vessels to navigate an impressive 20-metre drop!
Have a family picnic amid a scenic landscape, then browse the old barracks which are now a museum. Curious to see a gigantic power station facility up close? Visits are free of charge.
