Recreation in the Greenbelt

Recreation in the Greenbelt

(Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: The National Capital Commission

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


The Greenbelt attracts 3.5 million visits each year and offers all kinds of outdoor, family-friendly activities:
hiking, picnicking, bird watching, biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, off-leash dog parks, and toboggan hills

The Greenbelt features over 150 kilometres of recreational trails, which link to the Capital Pathway network, the Rideau Trail (Ottawa to Kingston) and the Trans Canada Trail. Once completed, the Greenbelt Pathway will be a continuous 56-kilometre recreational corridor extending from one side of the Greenbelt to the other.

Currently the Greenbelt has three recreational paths that are excellent for cycling, walking and running. They are:
Watts Creek Pathway, Greenbelt Pathway West, and Greenbelt Pathway East
