The Galt Pedestrian Bridge
Built-in 1912 the "Holey Bridge" spanned the Grand River for more than 60 years. By 1984, all that remained were the concrete piers. On May 26, 2018, a new bridge built in its place will open. Don't forget to check out this great new attraction.

Cambridge Centre of the Arts

In 1921, the Public Utilities Commission (now the CCA building) was the first all-steel structure to be built in Ontario. There was great civic pride when Sir Adam Beck, the father of Ontario Hydro, officially opened the building in 1922. It was the Ontario Hydro building for more than 60 years before they relocated. The building was vacant until 1990 when the City renovated the front half for a seniors' centre, located at the corner of Dickson and Wellington streets.
