  • You can go on foot walking along the Rideau Street or better yet a boat ride on the Ottawa River-enjoy and take a aquataxi because it is cheap.

  • Beautiful Falls just where the Rideau River meet Ottawa River. They are quite spectacular and you get some nice photo shoots 
  • we didn't even know that we were going to see such a lovely sight until we basically feel apon this on our way to 24 Sussex!

  • 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.
