I grew up in this area but haven't lived here for decades. When young, we know there was a tunnel under the city, but it was all boarded up for safety. So cool that it was opened and developed into a really neat attraction. And free!

It really is just a tunnel, but they add music and changing lights that make it quite neat to go through even if you aren't interested in reading the informative signs throughout the tunnel (i.e. little kids). The temperature is quite cool in the tunnel, so it is especially nice to walk through when the weather is blisteringly hot outside. I didn't realize how long it was until we walked the distance back above ground.

This rail tunnel is a wonderful gift to the public that was refurbished by the City of Brockville along with many supporting agencies and companies in support of Canada 150. What a great historic site brought to life using modern technology.

A must see if in Brockville. The tunnel is lined with lights and historical plaques along the way explaining the construction etc. It is free but they do ask for a voluntary donation to help support the maintenance costs. Start at the north end so you exit at the waterfront.

It will take you about 20 minutes to walk up and down the tunnel. It's worth it, just to even think about what it took to get materials moving in Canada's early days.
