Almonte Riverwalk

The idea for a riverwalk in downtown Almonte originated more than 30 years ago, and finally became a reality in 2005.  Since opening, the Almonte Riverwalk, which consists of a series of bridges, has become a destination for nature lovers, photographers, and those who appreciate beautiful surroundings.  Meandering along the banks of the scenic Mississippi River, the walk starts behind the Old Town Hall and continues to the other end of Mill Street, ending in a breathtaking lookout at the site of the old Victoria Woolen Mill.  Through the dedicated efforts of all those who have contributed financially, the riverwalk has become a gem in the heart of Almonte.


Old Town Hall

Downtown Almonte is known for its beautiful heritage architecture.  A shining example is the Old Town Hall, and it's famous auditorium (named as one of Canada's best performance spaces), which is on the upper level.  Frequently used by the CBC for recordings, the auditorium hosts a wide variety of concerts and performances throughout the year, as well as banquets, photo shoots, films, and much more.


Old Almonte Post Office

Located halfway down Mill Street, this beautiful building was completed in 1891, and is notable because it was designed by well-known architect Thomas Fuller, who also happened to design Canada's Parliament Buildings!


Farmers' Market

 Located at the top of Mill Street, the Almonte Farmers' Market is held in the parking lot of the public library every Saturday morning from May to October, from 9:00 to 12:00.  A variety of local vendors offer fresh, in-season products.  Visit the farmers' market website for more information.
