THE PERFECT WAY TO MEMORIALIZE A PERSON, PLACE OR EVENT.
The Shubenacadie Canal Commission’s Canal Bench Program was created to provide individuals and organizations the opportunity to commemorate a person, place or event, while at the same time enhancing the Shubenacadie Canal Waterway for all. Currently, the benches are being placed in the beautiful Shubie Park, which is the location of the famous “Deep Cut” and Locks 2 and 3. Eventually benches will also be placed at other areas along the 114 km long waterway. The natural beauty of the canal waterway, combined with the craftsmanship, ingenuity, and scale of its engineering and architectural structures, and cultural importance to this region, makes it the perfect place to reflect upon, celebrate, and memorialize a person, place or event.
