Downtown Ottawa is surrounded by two rivers and split by one great big canal. The Rideau River flows into the Ottawa at Green Island, and about a mile south are the first eight locks of North America’s oldest continuously operating canal. Over 125 miles long, it connects the Ottawa River to Lake Ontario, and needs 49 locks to do it. Along the way, is a dam and a pair of locks known as Hogs Back Lockstation.<
