This park is located in the Sandy Hill part of Ottawa, along the Rideau River. It is a nice oasis in the middle of the city. Lots of grass, trees, scenery, picnic tables, etc. There's also a play structure for the kids. In the summer,...More

Far from a pet free park. There are dogs everywhere in this park. I have seen bylaw present on very very rare occasions and they do not enforce.

We often visit this park in the spring, summer and fall. There is always something interesting going on there whether it is human or natural. It is a long park that follows the river for 1km? and fairly wide so you aren't aware of the...More

The park is beautiful. The new bridge connecting it to the other side of the river is a beautiful addition. Something for everyone. You can even go down to the water.

It is a small park in the middle of the city, with a lot of nice pathways. Good for children both in the summer but also in the winter. Parking close to the park.

Very nice, clean and well kept park along the Ottawa River. We like to walk through it after dinner when it is nice and cool out. Always a lot of hustle and bustle in the park...lots of squirrels, ducks, and other wildlife. Unfortunately it is...More

This is such a nice park! It is convenient located in an urban area, so you can go on weekdays after work, and kid will love going to the pool after school or daycare. There are picnic tables and trees that offer good shade. Or...More

This is a nice park in a residential area, not far from Ottawa's market, downtown and university. It is a very pleasant, urban oasis, situated along a river, with plenty of trees and space for picnics or Frisbees. There's not too much parking, however, so...More
