“Nice piece of engineering”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

A nice spot to explore on a summer day. Watching boats traverse the series of locks, exploring the displays and learning about the history of the construction of the canal is a must do if you are visiting the area.

Be sure to get an ice cream cone at the hotel store at the base of the locks.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

A lot of history and free walk through
Worth the stop to have a look at history
Hotel Kenney looks interesting
Staff are somewhat preoccupied to help though
