Windsor Locks Canal Trail

The Friends of the Canal continue their efforts to improve the Windsor Locks Canal Trail. Residents of Windsor Locks, Suffield, Enfield, East Windsor and even Longmeadow, MA have joined together to improve this unique recreational asset which runs from Windsor Locks Town Center at the Montgomery Building to Canal Road in Suffield. The Friends are looking for active members to assist in their efforts. Yearly membership is only $25. Monthly progress reports are sent by e-mail. Contact the President, Steve Sorrow, at for more information.

As a result of a recommendation stemming from the Main Street Master Planning Study, the Town has opened a dialogue with the State of Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection regarding restarting efforts towards the establishment of the Windsor Locks Canal State Park. A master plan for such a park was developed by the DEP in 1988.
