Owner description: Now Open Daily*, 9:00am-9:00pm! Canada’s First Railway Tunnel was completed in 1860 for the Brockville and Ottawa Railway and later owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway until being acquired by the City of Brockville in 1983. The Tunnel is a remarkable example of Canada’s pre-Confederation industrial heritage that this restoration project will repurpose for the benefit of recreation, tourism and economic development. Key features of the Tunnel restoration include a new paved concrete floor and state-of-the-art energy efficient lighting for safety and to highlight the Tunnel’s architecture and geology. * Daily Access may be limited due to extreme weather conditions. Please check for weather warnings for Brockville Ontario before you travel.

Really loved walking in the tunnel and watching the variety of light patterns and listening to the music. Well worth the visit. I wish there were tables and chairs and a bar. I would’ve sat there for a while.

Anyone in the downtown area of Brockville must take a stroll through the train tunnel. It is a nostalgic and entertaining experience. The walk includes a light show , music and beautiful stonework with every inch different .
This is my 3rd walk through and certainly not my last
There was a steady flow of people . What a wonderful Brockville attraction.

I loved the railway tunnel! It was a last minute decision because it was getting late at night. I am so happy with our choice. The lighting and atmosphere are amazing.
