We brought our bikes to do some outdoor activity and biking along the parkway was beautiful. Nice paved paths along the river.

This parkway is used frequently when visiting friends. If the option is the highway or the parkway, the parkway will always win! A beautiful calm drive along the ottawa river.

It will be better once all of the construction is completed, but it is a beautiful and scenic route from the Westend of the city to downtown.

Normally a nice ride but it's under construction. Avoid it if possible. Nothing to see. Go elsewhere.

This beautiful route in and out of downtown is headed for Major Construction over the next few months as the LRT Phase 2 pushes the parkway up against the river. Don't say I didn't warn you. There is a schedule, but Phase 1 was a year and a half behind schedule!
