  • Pleasant place for an evening stroll... Can walk right over the falls..
  • It's small falls ,if you have time in Ottawa you can visit, but not wait something special.
  • Small power-generating falls. Dropped by after visiting Rideau Hall and before heading back to downtown Ottawa, although it is also possible to see the falls from the Ottawa River aboard a ferry. There are two segments of the falls found on both sides of Green Island. I saw some swimmers but I doubt the water is clean and pure.
  • Beautiful sunset location. Lots of neat things to see on green Island with the memorials. Right on the Rideau River bike path.
