The Canadian National Railway tracks run through the town, which is situated immediately east of Lac Ste. Anne and south of the Sturgeon River. Onoway built and opened a new Elementary school, and the old one is being used as a public library and museum. A new Jr/Sr High school was completed in late 2016 while the old one was demolished and in its place a new outdoor running track is currently being built. Every June, Onoway has a fair weekend, called "Heritage Days"
