“Awesome Bike Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Was able to bike ride along the parkway on Sunday morning. I have not biked in 30 years and was able to pick it up again easily.
Great way to spend a Sunday morning.

“Nice spots to park and walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Take the time to explore the various parking lots along the parkway - there are ducks and geese which are so used to humans you can walk right up to them and snap their photos !

“Pretty Bike Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

If you go, take your bikes for a very pretty ride around our Capital. We rode the Parkway and the Canal for about 25 kM and the sights were terrific.

“Race day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

What can I say?? The road was closed for our run/bike/run. How could I not enjoy it! The volunteers pointed out the few major potholes which no one wanted to hit on their bikes.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

If you're visiting & are out in -Bayshore - or Kanata -anywhere West - make your way over to the Parkway & get to the downtown on the gentle path of this overlooked road.
