One of only two hydraulic lift locks on the Waterway, Lock 21 is the highest hydraulic lift lock in the world. Opened on July 9, 1904, it leaves a visible and lasting impact on Peterborough's landscape. Quiet overnight mooring is located at the upper level. There are plenty of services within a 10-minute walk to the East City area of Peterborough. The Peterborough Lift Lock Visitor Centre is located next to the lock. At the Visitor Centre, visitors can find public washrooms, the Friends of the Trent-Severn Waterway Gift Shop, as well as exhibits and films. The Visitor Centre is open daily during the navigation season. For more information and group tour bookings, phone (705) 750-4950.
