Published on 13 Oct 2017
If you have driven past the OWFC, OPP & CCWG buildings lately you may have noticed work beginning along the abandoned rail line between Moore and Coleman Street. This is the preliminary grading and drainage work for what will become a parkland space that can be enjoyed by the whole community.
This video illustrates the conceptual plans for the area. A request for funding for this project has been made as part of the 2018 budgeting process. If approved, work on the project will begin in early 2018 and the expectation is that the park will be open for public use in 2019 which will coincide with the Town’s 200th Anniversary.

Doors Open Carleton Place

On Sept 16 & 17th CCWG is participating in the Doors Open Ontario.

Guided tours are available from 11:30am to 2pm of the wool grading facility and warehouse.

CCWG occupies what was once the round house and machine shops for the CPR. when used by the CPR from 1890-1939, as many as 200 men were employed in this building. It was a serious loss to the town when the whole operation was moved to Smiths Falls, ON in 1939.

In the fall of 1940, the round house was once again open when the 'wool growers' moved in. After a massive clean up CCWG was in business.
