Peterborough & the Kawarthas is Home to Canada’s Treasured Waterway
Welcome to the Trent-Severn Trail Town Region
In many ways, the culture of a region is shaped by the character of the water that runs through it, here, it is the historic Trent-Severn Waterway. Frozen rivers becoming neighborhood hockey arenas, lakes and streams welcoming the smooth glide of the kayak, waterside patios built for evening sunsets and that childhood magic which happens mid-air between the dock and the first rush of a familiar lake. In Peterborough & the Kawarthas, we have a romance with our abundance of fresh water. It has become a way of life, year-round. If you’ve yet to discover your personal connection with this amazing part of nature, we welcome you to do so right here in our backyard. Canoeing, sailing, jet-skiing, fishing, swimming, boating, tubing, wake boarding, water-skiing, taking in a cruise through the Lift Lock, or soaking in the warm sun on a comfy inflatable — there are so many amazing life experiences that are right here for you and yours to enjoy — and affordably so. The question is, where will you find your connection?
Peterborough & the Kawarthas is home to Canada’s Treasured Waterway, the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site of Canada – our connection to our land, our people, our industry, our past and most importantly our future.
