The Shubenacadie Canal Commission historical guided tours program ‘History Hikes’ will be starting again this May!  This unique tour begins at the Fairbanks Centre, in Shubie Park, which surrounds the section of the canal that connects Lake Micmac and Lake Charles. During the walk, you will see Locks 2 and 3 and have a chance to explore historic canal features like the Holding Pond, the Deep Cut, and the remains of stone blackhouses (temporary homes built by the canal workers during construction). The experience cannot help but impress upon you how little of this site has been changed over time.
