Construction of the Lakefield lockstation

Lock 26 is only a ten-minute walk to downtown Lakefield. The town is very appealing and tourist oriented, with a full range of services available. In Lakefield there is a literary connection with Susanna Moody, Catherine Parr Trail and Samuel Strickland. There is plenty of mooring space on the upper side of this lock.
