“My favorite place in the world.”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

okay, maybe I'm biased since I live in the area. But I absolutely love Jones Falls. This is an amazing spot for running, hiking, photography, or just having a picnic. I usually go for a jog here at least once a week and my kids know as much about this spot as I do. This is one of our favorite places to go and relax as a family. So much history, so much life, and so much to see!

“Jones falls on Rideau Canal”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Largest drop in the system from Ottawa to Kingston. Hotel Kenny provides Great Meals. Black Smith & Lockmaster exhibits Very pretty area. Can take a cruise from there back to Rideau Lakes.
