Sightseeing

The largest hydraulic lift-lock in the world. Its quite an impressive structure considering it was built over 100yrs ago. A nice view from the top. Ice skating below in the winter months. This will soon be the new location for our 'Canadian canoe museum'.

Parks & Nature

Beautiful park with a winding stream and small reservoir. There are many access points as the trans-Canada trail runs through this park, however the heart of the park is basically where the pin is dropped on the map. Many loops of varying lengths and dog/bike/jogger friendly.
