The Stittsville Quarry is a quarry located just off Jinkinson Road in Stittsville, ON where many locals go to cool off and have some fun in the summer. While the industrial property says “No Trespassing” and is owned by Thomas Cavanagh Construction and R.W. Tomlinson, they allow the locals to swim so long as they are aware that the company isn’t liable for anything.

John French, Cavanagh’s safety manager expressed that being in the business he’s in its quite easy to piss off the neighbours with blasting and big trucks so they like to be flexible with the locals. However, they will lock the place up if it becomes a safety risk. (via)

It’s a wonderful spot to cool off on a hot summer day, just make sure to be safe and respectful of the property!
