Arnprior

Arnprior, Ontario, the 'town of the beautiful rivers' is situated at the junction of the Ottawa and Madawaska Rivers, just off Hwy 417, twenty five minutes west of major urban amenities in Kanata and Ottawa. The area was first settled in the early 1800's by Archibald McNab who named the area after his family's ancestral home of Arnprior, Scotland. After becoming renowned for the despotic way he treated those on his land, he was forced out of the area in 1840 and it was left vacant until 1851 when it's location naturally led it to become a part of eastern Ontario's massive timber industry. Arnprior was incorporated as a village in 1862. Thirty years later, it was incorporated as a town. The best of small town living and urban proximity comes to meet in Arnprior. A wealth of leisure activities and recreation are available, by way of twelve neighbourhood parks, walking trails, a stand of old growth forest and recreational trail, Nick Smith Centre Arena, indoor pool, skateboard park, and of course, the extensive docks and marinas on both the Ottawa and Madawaska rivers. The timeless charm of the active commercial district is reflected in the wealth of historical buildings. With plenty of shops, services, and restaurants, most residents find they don't need to make the trip into the city very often. In addition to community events and festivals, the beautiful O'Brien Theatre and the Mile High Skydiving club provide plenty of entertainment to take in. A long list of community services, ranging from Children's centres to full Health Services, Family services and Crisis Response programs, to education and skills training, all come together to make Arnprior a wonderful community. There are six schools in Arnprior; AJ Charbonneau School, Arnprior and District High School, John XXII Separate School, St. Joseph's Separate School, Walter Zadow Public School, and an Alternative School offering adult programs. Thirteen churches of varying denominations, music groups, theatre, and artist round out the diverse culture of this beautiful town.
