Spring on the Greenbelt’s Trails – Green’s Creek

Spring on the Greenbelt’s Trails - Green's Creek

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 6 – Natural Capital, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: The National Capital Commission

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


The steep, forested slopes of Green’s Creek, and the narrow, clay-based flood plain provide an important wildlife corridor. This corridor extends south from the Ottawa River to inland habitats, and crosses developed agricultural and urban lands. The creek also supports a wide variety of provincially and regionally rare species, including probably the largest Canadian population of the rare cattail sedge.

Things to do at Green’s Creek

The area contains 5.5 kilometres of trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. The Greenbelt Pathway offers 4.6 kilometres for cycling and in-line skating, and connects to the Ottawa River Pathway. In winter, the toboggan hill provides fun for the whole family.
