Lock 5 Park is a wonderful place to view a piece of Nova Scotia history. This 14-acre public park is home to a fully restored lock that once connected Fletcher’s Lake to Grand Lake. When the lock was in operation, a dam in the stream to the east of the lock would have raised the water level sufficiently high to allow boats to enter the upper end of the lock, on their way to Grand Lake.
Lock 5 is also an excellent spot to launch a boat into Grand Lake. We invite you to come explore the history and recreational opportunities at Lock 5.
Lock 5 is one of Canada’s Historic Places.
