    Tunnel opening for the season on Friday May 17

    Posted: Friday May 10, 2024

    We are pleased to announce that the Brockville Railway Tunnel will open for the 2024 season on Friday May 17th!  For the time being, the tunnel will feature white lights only and we are excited to feature Brockville’s local radio station, 104.9 Move FM inside the tunnel when it opens.

    We will continue to work on repairs and upgrades to bring back the colour show in all its glory. As soon as the required parts arrive and can be installed and programmed, which we estimate will be mid summer, the show will be back in full force.

    Until then, we hope that you can get out and enjoy the tunnel, as one of Brockville’s premier attractions. Panels inside the tunnel provide historical context and interesting facts about the attraction. The white lights provide the best opportunity to observe the unique geological features of the tunnel, so we encourage you to take this opportunity to dive into the history and science of the tunnel when you visit.

    Admission into the tunnel is free, although donations are greatly appreciated. Secure donation bins can be found inside the tunnel itself, or you can make a donation to the tunnel online.

    Hours of operation:

    • 9:00 am to 9:00 pm daily
    • 7 days a week


    When the parts arrive, we may need to close the tunnel for a week to undergo those repairs as quickly as possible, and if that happens we will post an update on the city website, tunnel website, and our social media channels so that everyone can plan accordingly.

    We thank you for your patience with this as we work through these repairs, and look forward to seeing you all out enjoying the tunnel this summer.
