Spring Gazebo

Nestled at the head of the Rideau Lakes, Westport was originally surveyed by Reuben Sherwood in 1803 almost thirty years before the building of the Rideau Canal. With the watershed of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve dividing on the crest of Foley Mountain, water runs over and under this Precambrian shield in unique ways. On one side of the Mountain the watershed flows off towards Ottawa through the Rideau Lakes and River system while the opposite side feeds through the Cataraqui system into Lake Ontario.
