If you follow the river to the North of Almonte, you will arrive in the quaint Town of Pakenham.
Pakenham is home to two of Lanark County’s Seven Wonders. The Five-Span Stone Bridge, which is nestled over the mighty Mississippi River and the Saint Peter Celestine Church.
Pakenham is a classic example of “Small Town Ontario”, where everything is within walking distance. It boasts a General Store with an in-house bakery, a Feed & Seed, and an appliance store which is also home to the local butcher! In addition to the small town amenities, Pakenham has something special nestled in the woods – Mount Pakenham.
Mount Pakenham is an outdoor enthusiasts delight. With skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and tubing, Mount Pakenham offers winter fun for the whole family.
