Lock 9 - Meyers

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

A quiet, secluded lock station surrounded by farmland and trees, it is one of the prettiest stations on the Waterway. One of the restored lockmaster houses, which now serves as the lock station office and houses public washrooms, is located here. The Centennial Trial connects the Meyers Lock with Percy Reach. The lower level mooring in particular is sheltered from the wind.

Lock 9 - Myers
Constructed: 1910-1915

Originally, the Waterway was created as timber barons, farmers, merchants and commercial travellers sought passage from town to town. The numerous rapids on this stretch of river necessitated the construction of several dams to control the water flow and level and locks were built to bypass the dams. This is known as a “slack water system” and is a basis for much of the Trent-Severn Waterway.
