Nepean Point Redevelopment – a 21st century green space

Nepean Point Redevelopment - a 21st century green space

(Theme 3 – Design, Theme 6 – Natural Capital, Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: The National Capital Commission (NCC)

Timeline for Completion: 2019-2020 Phase 1


A two-stage international design competition to redevelop Nepean Point will create a lively, 21st century green space, in the heart of the Capital. The first phase of construction is planned for 2019–2020.

Nepean Point is one of the most spectacular lookouts in Canada’s Capital, making it a key Capital destination. At the highest point of the site is a majestic statue of Samuel de Champlain, who explored the Ottawa River in 1613.

Our long-term vision for this area is to build multi-use recreational pathways connecting cultural institutions, the existing pathway network and green spaces, in order to create a continuous promenade from the Rideau Canal to Rideau Falls Park.
