Organization: National Capital Commission (NCC)
Timeline for Completion: Ongoing
Located on National Capital Commission land near the junctions of highways 417 and 416 in Ottawa’s west end, the 40 kilometres of trails at Stony Swamp are a great place to get back to nature without leaving the city. The area is classified as a provincial significant wetland, where you’ll find 700 species of plants and over 250 species of birds. There are also beaver ponds and a sugar maple forest.
There’s free parking all year round, and more information and maps available here.
