“Wonderful day at Canal Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

It was a beautiful summer day for a trolley ride followed by a canal boat ride. The rangers are friendly and educational at the same time. Afterwards we toured the Boott Cotton Mill and the Boardinghouse. Our ranger suggested a wonderful organic cafe Life Alive just a short walk away for an outdoor lunch. I have purchased my National Parks Pass as a result of this visit!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Canal and trolley ride as part of the National Park Service's management of Lowell Canals and the mills. The kids loved it and the price can't be beat. Local history, a ride through the locks out onto the Merrimack River- the rangers are very dedicated and informative. This is not a ride at Bush Gardens but it is lovely and scenic and nifty in your own backyard. Hands on museum and standard National Park info movie. Worth exploring.
