Watch the locks in action and take a stroll on the NEW Kaukauna Locks Trail. Work is complete and the recreational trail links the five Kaukauna locks with the network of trails in Kaukauna and the Fox Cities. Thanks to a $300,000 grant from the David L. and Rita E. Nelson Family Fund within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, the 1.3 mile trail runs adjacent to all five locks and gives pedestrians and cyclists a chance to see the locks in action during the summer months. The trail will be open year-round but will not be maintained in the winter months.
This project provides a living history experience through the locks and opens the story of the lock system for many more residents of Wisconsin.
Ample FREE parking is available: along Augustine St., at Kaukauna lock 5, on Canal St., and at the Fox River Navigational System Authority office located at 1008 Augustine St. in Kaukauna.
