The core of the Stittsville community

Canada’s Great Trail

Village Square Park on Canada’s Great Trail at the intersection of Main Street and Abbott, Stittsville, is a lush community park that is surrounded by heritage. With the last of the rail line through Stittsville in 1990, the heritage of the train station was maintained when it was repurposed as a community hub with access along a bike path to a lawn used for entertainment, a playground with a water tower and a log train set nestled between The Butler Hotel and a log building now called @The Barn.

The log barn now a local farmers’ market brings the community together to share the wares that local farmers and vendors offer on Thursdays and Sundays during the summer season. The Trans Canada Trail attracts many to its path to enjoy Mother Nature’s creations and provide an outlet for families to enjoy the great outdoors.
