I had the chance to see the most popular lift lock when I had a camping trip in Peterborough. It is interesting to note that since it was opened in 1904, it leaves a lasting impact on the city's landscape.
The lift lock in Peterborough is located on the Otonabee River. The dual lifts are considered the highest hydraulic boat lifts in the world.
I invite you to visit this structure when you are in Peterborough. For detailed information and interesting facts about the lift lock, please click the link to their website I provided below.

When anyone travels to Peterborough you are usually doing one of two things, going to see the lift locks or fishing in Rice Lake. In my case going home to the farm to see family. Peterborough and surrounding areas have alot of different things to do. They have the Warsaw Caves, Petroglyphs....very cool...native paintings on stone now under glass, but as a child I could sit right upon them. Fishing in Rice Lake is very rewarding for the abundance of fish and the panoramic view. It is all breath taking. When you can take the trip, you will be glad you did.

Petroglyphs Prov. Park is managed by the Curve Lake First Nation.
The Petroglyphs are refered to as "The Teaching Rocks" or
"Kinomagewapkong " in Algonkian .
"Teachings" are still practiced . Treat the site as you would treat a church .
The carvings are evidence of the relationship between nomadic hunters , gatherers and fishers with the spiritual world.

Petroglyphs Prov. Park is a day park just north of Peterborough.
In the park is the largest known aboriginal rock carving(s) in Canada.
Somewhere betwen 600 to 1100 years ago the Algonkin aboriginals carved some 900 figures into a flat marble rock ( 10 m by 20 m ) . The rock carvings were rediscovered in 1954 and a Provioncial Park was created in 1976 to protect the carving from progressive deterioration .
The Park is open from the first weekend in May till the Canadian Thanksgiving Day ( Oct.).
Entrance fee is $9.50 . There is a very impressive Interpretive Centre along with the Petroglyph Building Enclosure .
Taking pictures of the Petroglyphs is not permitted.

I really really like this place. The atmosphere is great, you can sit in the main area, or pool table part, or outdoor patio. Nice place to hang out with friends, girly nights, before you catch a movie. The waiters are really great. Only thing- they will only serve slushy drinks on the patio, don't know what's up with that.
Favorite Dish: I had the jumbo coconut shrimp cocktail, Fish'n'Chips (very good I am obssessed with fish), and they make excellent Long Islands, my fave, although maybe just a wee bit weak for me.
