“Rideau River Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

I am prejudiced because this is my neighbourhood park, but I love it. It sits on the Rideau River and has a beautiful pathway that runs along the edge of the park. Many trees to provide shade, but enough open space to enjoy the park.

Swings, play equipment, etc. are all well maintained.

The park also connects to a path that allows you access to other parks.

“Favourite park in Ottawa - despite living on the other side of city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

I live in Nepean, but walking along the Ottawa River in the Strathcona Park under the shade of the trees is my favorite way to relax in the city through the different seasons of the year, and at no cost! The 'ruins' are also a fun sight.

One warning: the bathrooms are often closed.
