Southern Farm and Pinhey Forest – The National Capital Greenbelt


Southern Farm and Pinhey Forest - The National Capital Greenbelt

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 9 – Recreation, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: The National Capital Commission

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing

Objective:

This conservation area in the Greenbelt contains a unique natural feature: Ottawa’s only inland sand dune complex. The Pinhey sand dune complex extends from Woodroffe Avenue just south of the Nepean Sportsplex to the Grenfell Crescent and Burnbank Street intersection. The vegetation in Pinhey Forest was established on old post-glacial sand dunes. This unique ecosystem is home to a number of plant and animal species that can only live in well-drained, open areas with exposed, fine-grained sand.
