Beckwith Township is located just on the outskirts of Carleton Place and is bounded by the Townships of Montague and Drummond/North Elmsley, and the Town of Mississippi Mills.
Beckwith Township is home to Franktown, the “Lilac Capital of Ontario”. The community welcomes everyone to visit Lilac Lane Park in May for the most fragrant festival around.
Also located in Beckwith Township is Beckwith Park and the Beckwith Recreation Complex. This community use facility has a state-of-the-art 50×100 foot coverall, perfect for indoor sporting activities and dances. The Park and Rec Complex is used daily, thanks to reciprocal use agreement with the Town of Carleton Place.
