  • Great place to chill out, but don't go when it's windy! The place fills up with kitesurfers that have no respect for anyone They get in the way of people fishing, windserfing and swimmers Let's just h...  more »
  • What a great place summer or winter. Huge pine trees offer shade in the summer and beauty in the winter. Located on the shore of the great Ottawa River - super scenery. Just minutes from downtown. Gre...  more »

  • If you are going on a weeknight where there might be a volleyball league playing, go early - the parking is ridiculously small. Even if there are two parking lots...There is a cool walk-out made of rocks that goes over the water - people fish there. Lots of room to play, swim, etc.
  • No dog area and dog off leash areas are obscure and hard to follow for first time visitor. Be careful of large pipes and construction stuff near beach that are not roped off and will become hidden in the snow. Otherwise, beautiful park and beach.
  • One of the best places to spend the evening on a summer day. Weekends can be crowded so you want to make sure to arrive early to find parking and a good spot if you are using their barbecue grills. Great place to hangout and watch the sunset. Grab some beach mats, your swim suites or your kayaks and enjoy the Ottawa River water. Don't forget the sunscreen on a sunny day :). There is a small burger joint called Baja Burger around the corner. They server great burgers and fries. Even their drinks are pretty good. The beach doesn't allow any alcoholic beverages so be mindful not to bring any on the beach.
  • Caught the last, only and awesome last rays of a sunset on a rainy overcast day. Out of nowhere for an hour it just lit up. Went with my dog Sam. I think I caught it on an exceptional day tbh. But let's be real it was awesome. 😬😳🙏❤
  • A beautiful place to walk around and bring the fam. Have a picnic... eat at the canteen... play beach volleyball, or soccer in the field... BBQs, playground... definitely a free gem in the city. Only downside is the water isn't always so clean, I don't feel the best swimming in it.
