Visit Our Restored Caboose & Railway Park in Sharbot Lake!

Image

Join us on Saturday, June 3 at 11:00 AM, on an Inaugural Walk along our new Railway Heritage Walkway, starting at the caboose in Railway Park. The Railway Heritage Walkway is a series 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 (where trains could do a three-point turn.)

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!

Make it a day trip.

The Railway Heritage Park is located in the heart of Sharbot Lake village at the junction of the old Canadian Pacific and Kingston&Pembroke rail lines.

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!

Hours

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.
Or, call (613) 279-2777 for an appointment and we’d be happy to show you around!
