The Oswego Canal
The Oswego Canal opened in 1828 as a part of New York's Erie Canal System and connects the Erie Canal at 'Three Rivers' near Liverpool, NY with Lake Ontario at Oswego Harbor.
Managed by the New York Canal Corporation, the Canal is utilized by Boaters who wish to travel to and from the Erie Canal Inland Waterways and Great Lake Ontario.
