To learn more about the rich Ottawa Valley history, a trip to the Bonnechere Provincial Park is perfect and fun for all! This park is located on Round Lake and the Bonnechere River, and is one of the most scenic examples of glacial lake topography in Ontario. The park is surrounded by old Canadian Shield hills that were pushed and pulled by the ancient glacier. There are ample swimming opportunities in the clear waters and sandy shores of Round Lake. The lake is very shallow making it a great spot for young children. You might also enjoy a leisurely paddle along the shoreline of the Bonnechere river and up to Jack’s Chute. Additionally, the very popular activity of stand up paddleboarding is available on Round Lake. If you simply want to relax and escape from the stress of life, visit the Book Tree; a little park library made from the trunk of a massive pine tree, estimated to be almost a century old. You are sure to fall in love with this park!
