To celebrate Culture Days we're offering free pre-registered tours of the Post Office on select days in September and October. Visit our program page for details.
Oakville's first post office was built in 1835 and was originally located at Colborne (now Lakeshore) and Navy Street. It was moved to Lakeside Park in 1952 where it became Oakville's first museum. Today, it's open during the summer for tours and postal-related activities including writing with a quill pen.
Oakville's First Post Office is not wheelchair accessible.
