Visit Our Restored Caboose and Railway Park in Sharbot Lake!

Our Railway Heritage Park is located in the heart of the village of Sharbot Lake, Ontario at the junction of the Canadian Pacific Railway and Kingston and Pembroke rail lines.

Please join us on June 30 for CabooseFest, the opening of our 2018 summer season at Railway Heritage Park.  Get ready to stomp & swing at the Kick & Push from 11 AM to 2 PM, with a great lineup of performers:

11:00 – 11:30 AM — The Boxcar Boys
(Jim MacPherson, Dennis LaRocque, Dave Limber and Gary Giller)
11:30 – 12 noon — Kora Kamps and Friends
12:15 – 12:45 PM — Jessica Wedden
1:00 – 1:45 PM — Shawn McCullough

Come and enjoy the music, plus activities for children and a BBQ lunch for sale by the Lions Club to support the Food Bank.

See all the updates to the Park, including the completed Station Display with the original Sharbot Lake station sign.

Admission is free.

Afterwards please enjoy a history of the caboose and learn about the rich railway heritage along the Central Frontenac Railway Heritage Walkway Tour.
