The Manotick Public Library stands on the east side of South River Drive about halfway between Bridge Street and South Island Park Drive in Manotick.

William Tyrrell Macoun was Dominion Horticulturist and the architect of the Dominion Experimental Farm, Saanichton Station in 1912. The sundial that stands in his memory in the Ornamental Gardens at the Experimental farm was unveiled there in 1936. The pedestal and ornaments were designed by Arthur Kellett.
