Entire Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site to reopen for Navigation for the Thanksgiving Weekend

Issued: October 06, 2021

PETERBOROUGH, ON – October 5, 2021 - Parks Canada advises that the entire Trent-Severn Waterway will reopen for recreational boating on the morning of Friday, October 8, 2021.

Recent unusually high levels of rain necessitated a temporary closure of Lock 1 Trenton to Lock 27 Young’s Point (excluding Lock 20 Ashburnham & Lock 21 Peterborough Lift Lock) to allow operations staff to move water through the system to create safe boating conditions.

Parks Canada is grateful to the public for their patience and cooperation while this crucial work was carried out. We look forward to welcoming boaters back for the final weekend of the 2021 Navigation Season. The last lockage of the season will occur on Monday, October 11, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.
