Walton Cantonment Board ( which came into being in 1998) is spread over an area of 10,000 acres (15.625 Square miles) including the most posh living areas like Defence Housing Authority, Cavalry Ground, Askaries, the Civil Services academy (the alma mater of all Civil Servants) and in addition to this a number of villages (which were without the basic civic infrastructure) forms part of this Cantonment. With the grace of God most of the villages are now slowly and gradually developed and basic infrastructure is being laid. Phase 09 and 10 of DHA are soon becoming part of the Walton Cantonment. Population of Walton Cantt is presently 500,000 people approximately.
Why is it Called Walton?
Infact, the area commonly known as Walton today is named after Sir Col. Cusach Walton, who was an agent of North West railways in the undivided India. A Walton training school of North West Railways was established in his name on 8th march 1930, the same was inaugurated by the then Governor of the Punjab, H.E. Sir Geoffery Fitz Harvey de Montmorencyand the name survived the test of time, and that's why it is widely known as Walton. Later on the foundation of Walton Railway Station was also laid beside this training school.
