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