"I am saddened and VERY disappointed to see Twp. Property and equipment completely destroyed by fire at Burnstown Beach. This senseless act cost the tax payers of our municipality tens of thousands of dollars. Please help find those responsible. If you know anything or hear anything contact the OPP in Renfrew and/or myself.

Almost 100 square miles, the Township of McNab/Braeside is situated between the towns of Arnprior and Renfrew. The Township is within easy commuting distance of downtown Ottawa. Bordering the Ottawa River on the northeast and White Lake on the southwest, with the magnificent Madawaska River flowing through it, the municipality is a nature’s paradise.

About 7,500 people live here year-round — many in the communities of Braeside, Burnstown, Glasgow Station, Lochwinnoch, Pine Grove, Sand Point, Stewartville, Waba and White Lake — and thousands more flock to the area in the summer months.
