SJAM Winter Trail Open

SJAM Winter Trail Open

(Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation)

Organization: Dovercourt Recreation Association/National Capital Commission

Timeline for Completion: Started Feb 2016 Ongoing Seasonal


A groomed multi-use winter trail along the Sir John A. Macdonald (SJAM) multi-use pathway (MUP) promotes active living, provides access to the Ottawa River shoreline, and welcomes a diversity of users, whether they are walking, on skis, snowshoes or a snow bike. The salt-free trail respects environmental sensitivities unique to the river shoreline.

The trail connects the Canadian War Museum with park lands along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway to Westboro Beach, animating spaces that until now have been little used in the winter. Transit stations border the trail at LeBreton Flats, Bayview/O-train and Dominion Stations, with parking at Westboro Beach, Champlain Park and the Canadian War Museum, that provides ready access for visitors from around the National Capital Region.
