The County of Frontenac invites you and other trail users to celebrate Frontenac K&P Trail Day in Sharbot Lake on August 26, 2017. A ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the Frontenac K&P Trail is planned at the Railway Heritage Park and Oso Beach in Sharbot Lake, Ontario. Come by foot, bicycle, horse or even on an ATV to participate in the celebration kick off in Railway Heritage park, to join the trail parade through the Sharbot Lake Rock Cut, and to enjoy music and food at Oso Beach.
On Saturday, June 3, 2017, our new Railway Heritage Walkway was opened. The tour consists of twelve informative signs at historic spots along the former trackbed through the village, from the site of the old Road 38 railway overpass, to the “Wye” south of the causeway.
Make it a day trip.
Our Railway Heritage Park is located in the heart of Sharbot Lake village at the junction of the old Canadian Pacific Railway and Kingston and Pembroke rail lines.
Enjoy a history of the caboose and learn about the railway heritage of Central Frontenac.
Have your picture taken with our cut-out train and conductor!
Check out our static displays.
While in the village, be sure to see the famous murals on Garrett Street. Stop for lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants. Be sure to go to the beautiful beach for a cool dip and let the kids enjoy the play structures!
Self-guided tours of the outdoor displays are possible anytime.
You will find a laminated guide of the site at the steps of the caboose.
The caboose is open during the summer months, every Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
