“Well Worth the Visit.”

Rideau Canal - Jones Falls Defensible Lockmasters House
Ranked #20 of 103 things to do in Kingston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 15, 2012

It was an interesting and informative experience. Be sure to explore the entire site including the huge dam and the operating blacksmith's forge.

The entire Rideau System is a beautifully preserved monument to Col. By, his engineers and the workers who built it.

okay, maybe I'm biased since I live in the area. But I absolutely love Jones Falls. This is an amazing spot for running, hiking, photography, or just having a picnic. I usually go for a jog here at least once a week and my kids know as much about this spot as I do. This is one of our favorite places to go and relax as a family. So much history, so much life, and so much to see!

Quaint and beautiful out-of-the-way spot just off Highway 15.

Largest drop in the system from Ottawa to Kingston. Hotel Kenny provides Great Meals. Black Smith & Lockmaster exhibits Very pretty area. Can take a cruise from there back to Rideau Lakes.
