Lock 32

Before wireless communications came into vogue, waterways were the communication channels for Ontario's pioneers. Built over 160 years ago, Lock 32 has been instrumental in the movement of people and goods along the Trent-Severn Waterway since the latter's inception in the 1830s. Come and enjoy a stroll along the water that was once traversed by logging steamers and pleasure craft.
