Shirleys Bay – The National Capital Greenbelt

Shirleys Bay – The National Capital Greenbelt

(Theme 6 – Natural Capital, Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation)

Organization: The National Capital Commission

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


Shirleys Bay, to the west of Ottawa, is a provincially significant wetland and the largest marshland in the Greenbelt. It’s also one of the best spots in Canada’s Capital Region for birdwatching. The bay is an old channel of the Ottawa River, and it has a launch for small boats. Within the conservation area, there are seven kilometres of hiking trails and two recreational paths: the Watts Creek Pathway and the Greenbelt Pathway West.
