It was a beautiful day in Pembroke as we arrived at our destination, Best Western Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre. We were staying for a couple days and wanted to take in some of the attractions travelers have found most interesting in and around Pembroke. On previous visits we had already visited OWL White Water Rafting, Algonquin Park, Pembroke Golf & Country Club and The Garrison Petawawa Military Base.

Site Seeing at CFB Garrison Petawawa
In and around Pembroke there’s no shortage of breathtaking sites to take in. In this info bulletin we’ll focus on CFB (Canadian Forces Base) Garrison Petawawa. It is located about 171 KM northwest of Ottawa in Ottawa Valley (Renfrew County). In the small town of Petawawa is a robust population of military personnel found in Laurentian Hills.
There’s a small town about 90 minutes west of Ottawa known as Petawawa. It’s a small town found on the west shoreline of the Ottawa River. Petawawa is only about 165 Sq. Km in size. For such a small town the population is 15,000 due to the large military presence in the area.
