Lock E13 – Mohawk Valley Welcome Center
The welcome center at Lock E13 along the Erie Canal offers a fully custom playground for travelers that invokes the history of the area. Stacks of sculptural concrete crates, sacks, and barrels leading to a slide create a fun and educational space to climb and explore. A boat shaped structure holds climbing nets, and a spinner disguised as a crane adds movement. Lifelike mules complete the charming and historic play area, which will engage the imagination of kids and adults alike.
