This project has been earmarked for future consideration and will include the development of a design concept and architectural plan as well construction of a renewed lockstation building. Preliminary work has been conducted that will guide the design of a new building that will better fulfil operational needs. The final design concept will honour the history of the site and provide a more suitable space for visitors.

In June 2016, members of the Fenelon Falls business community and community groups, representatives from both the City of Kawartha Lakes and Parks Canada participated in a workshop to gain common insight regarding the Fenelon Falls lockstation site. As the project to renew the lock control building progresses, Parks Canada will engage with the community again, and provide updates on the status of this important project.
