The last few weeks have been very exciting for all of us on Canals especially on the Trent-Severn Waterway. In keeping up with this positive trend, Parks Canada has announced, for the first time, canal
boaters can take advantage of FREE LOCKAGE on Wednesday July 1, 2015 in celebration of Canada Day throughout the Rideau Canal and the Trent-Severn Waterway!
In addition, just as a reminder, boaters can continue to take advantage of the 2 for 1 lockage coupon until June 30, 2015. Parks Canada’s goal with this special offer is to get more people out experiencing the canals and associated communities.
Please DM @trentsevernnhs to learn more and to help assist Parks Canada in their promotion of the Trent Severn.
Vessel numbers on the Trent Severn for the month of May have increased by 34% and the number of vessels mooring has increased 51% from 2014. Parks Canda will continue to actively work on as many promotions and ideas to help increase boating on the Trent-Severn. Some promotional items this year have included the oTENTiks at Lock 24, 10 sets of Red Chairs, and the Canoe Museum’s Voyageur Canoe tours coming soon the Peterborough Lift Lock.
Visitors will also find new showers, canoe docks, 8 newly renovated
washrooms, firewood and ice sales at select locks.
Look forward to seeing a VERY busy Canada Day on the Trent-Severn!!
