Organization: The National Capital Commission (NCC)

Timeline for Completion: Started 2018


The creation of a continuous riverfront park that reconnects people with the Ottawa River.

The Ottawa River South Shore Riverfront Park Plan creates a continuous riverfront park that contributes to environmental sustainability, is attractive and resilient, and enhances the recreational experience.

Based on extensive consultations with local residents, Indigenous communities and stakeholders, the plan will connect communities to the nine kilometres of riverfront lands between LeBreton Flats and Mud Lake Conservation Area.

Highlights of the plan

•Improved recreational opportunities along the shoreline, with programmable public areas
•Access to public amenities such as washroom facilities, water fountains, lookouts, bicycle parking, and food and beverage services
•Safer cycling and walking paths to increase public access to the river, as well as traffic-calming measures, including speed reduction
•A vegetation strategy to protect and enhance wildlife habitat
