Re-imagining Stittsville Main St.



Description

On this walk we'll explore the past, present and future of Stittsville Main Street. Stittsville is in the midst of a transition from a rural village to a bustling suburban centre, and at the heart of all the action is the historic Stittsville Main Street. Once a stop along the railway, a number of new shops and developments are at the forefront of a new era for the historic part of the village. We'll visit some of these new developments and hear ideas about what the street could become in the future.


Route

Starting from VIllage Square Park at Stittsville Main St. and Abbott St., we'll walk along Stittsville Main Street, heading north to Wintergreen, and then back again.

There is street parking along Abbott St east of Stittsville Main St., as well as a municipal parking lot on the west side of Stittsville Main St just south of Abbott.

For OC Transpo, take the route 61 bus.
