The Cape Cod Canal is located within the coastal eco-region of the state of Massachusetts. The waterway bisects the town of Bourne, with the eastern end in Sandwich. The property includes 982 acres of project land situated along the 7.4 mile land cut. The Canal's project land also includes areas at Stony Point and Mashnee Dikes and Wings Neck. Much of the Canal consists of a narrow (generally less than 500 foot wide) strip of land. More extensive government holdings exist at Scusset marsh and beach, the Midway area and areas near the Cape Cod Canal Railroad, Bourne and Sagamore Bridges and the Cape Cod Canal administration office.
