Lock 32 is the only place in the Northeastern US that has controllable water levels for more than 100 days a year.
Construction on the park began in 1996 when a local paddler was looking for a close place to practice his skills. His ambition and connections through his job led him to find the spillway of a canal lock and eventually led to the construction of the park.
