“Face to nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Great place to go alone, with your lover or in family. Lots of nature, take a great breath not too far form downtown! Great place to go and to visit. Special mention to the "mer bleue" ... Wonderful!

“Blissful, serene, what a gift from Nature!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

To visit Mer Bleue Bog is to step back 8,000 years.

Spectacular beauty and peaceful.

Walk any length of the 3 km trail, listen to the soft song of many bird species.

The birch trees too, sing in the wind.

Perfect for any age. Pic nic tables, benches and toilets available.

Parking is ample and is free.

Drive to the end of the road, parking on the right side.

A perfect place to get away from the city and to feel deep peace in Nature.

Enjoy!

Namaste.

“Great place to enjoy the nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

It is a true gem in and around the city. Parts of the trails are accessible for those with limited mobility/strollers, but certain other parts are quite a hike or narrow/un-even. It is a natural environment afterall .

The only strange thing is that the "bing" map to the right side of this page shows some part in Washington/US. We are talking about Ottawa NCC Greenbelt, right? Trip Advisor may want to correct this error!

Great for a day out and a picnic. We spent the afternoon wandering and enjoying nature with woods, lakes and the wildlife.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I live very close to a part of the Greenbelt. It is extremely beautiful and consists of many walking trails, cross-country ski routes, bike paths, hiking trails equestrian parks and much more. The Greenbelt is an interesting part of Ottawa and its history.
