Additional bike stops in Downtown Carleton Place are Town Hall Square, Market Square, especially on Farmer’s Market Saturdays, May to October, 7:00 am -12:00 pm and Carleton Junction, where you will also find the community’s cherished pump track, an additional bike repair kit, and more public washrooms. Carleton Junction was home to the old Carleton Place train yard. In fact, if you look to the left of the pump track you can see the historic roundhouse. You will also see The Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers, CCWG Livestock Store which houses the Canadian Pacific Rail Museum, and The Real Wool Shop. The Canadian Wool Growers Co-operative grades approximately 3 million pounds of raw wool each year. The majority of the wool comes from Quebec, Ontario, and Alberta.
