Diane and her dragon boat crew explore the historic Shubenacadie Canal

A group of young paddlers from Dragon Boat East made the trip from Banook Lake to Lock 2 at Shubie Park. While there they learned about the historic locks by walking the trails beside the partially restored Lock 2 and 3. They also visited the Fairbanks center where they experienced a hands on demonstration of how the locks worked by using the lock model. Because of the size of the dragon boat the group had to paddle backwards out of the canal, all part of an exciting day.

If your group would like a demonstration and tour of the Locks at Shubie Park, please contact the Shubenacadie Canal Commission.
