Just north of Carp Village
meet at 10:30
Cost: $15 (payable in advance)

   Come out and experience a 60 minute guided tour of this unique museum.
   The Diefenbunker is a massive four-storey underground bunker, built between 1959 and 1961. During the Cold War, top officials were to take shelter here in the event of a nuclear war. It was active as Canadian Forces Station Carp until 1994.
    In 1994, the Diefenbunker was designated a National Historic Site of Canada because it is considered the most important surviving Cold War site in Canada. The bunker is important as an engineering achievement and to the critical path method of planning used in its construction. In addition, the Diefenbunker is symbolic of the Cold War, a strategy of nuclear deterrence and the Canadian people's determination to survive as a nation following a nuclear war.
    Today, it operates as a not-for-profit, charitable museum with award-winning tours and programs.

The Swan At CarpFarina
108 Falldown Lane

   From TripAdvisor: "The Swan has reopened. Renovations are complete breathing new life into The Swan. Excellent food and service to this village pub and eatery. Not the usual pub fare though but with a wide selection of choices all well done. Food and desserts are prepared by two graduates of Cordon Bleu in Ottawa. Needs to be experienced to be appreciated. No loud music; no TVs to distract from the ambience and fellow diners."
