(La version française suivra) At the end of Baskin’s Beach Rd. in Kanata, Ottawa, you will find a small, quaint sandy beach along the Ottawa River, looking out onto the Gatineau Hills on the facing shore. There are no washrooms on site, and dogs aren’t allowed on the premises. Enjoy a picnic under the shade of surrounding trees. There are no lifeguards on site, proceed at your own risks.

Tout au bout du chemin Baskin’s Beach à Kanata, vous trouverez une charmante petite plage de sable longeant la rivière des Outaouais et faisant face aux collines de la Gatineau. Il n'y a pas de toilettes publiques sur place. Il n’y a aucune surveillance par des sauveteurs. Procédez à vos propres risques. Les animaux ne sont pas permis sur la plage.

I was only 4 at the time but I can still remember gliding along the sparkling blue green water, and how cool it was despite the warmth of the mid-summer.
