This park is the only one in Ontario located in an UNESCO World Heritage Site, the historic Rideau Waterway and Canal. It provides an interesting combination of nature and history, where you can watch for waterfowl, Great Blue Herons, and osprey, while visiting the canal deemed as “an engineering marvel”. In the park, the Main Beach is the perfect place to sit and relax, and maybe take a little swim. If you decide to paddle the Rideau Canal, you will fully experience the rich history of the area. There are plenty of guides and resources to help you plan an all-inclusive paddling route. The canal is a diverse and appealing waterway, including marshes, bays, and shallow beaches to stop at and explore. This is an ideal area to fish for muskie or bass, a popular activity within the park. You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
