Lock 34 Doors Open Kawartha Lakes

Lock 34

Waterways were the communications channels for Ontario’s pioneers – long before wireless communications or even the advent of the railways. Lock 34 was built in 1963, succeeding two older locks dating to 1885. At 11 metres (35 feet) wide and 43 metres (142 feet) long, Lock 34 is one of the busiest locks on the Trent-Severn Waterway.
