The geese can be a nuisance but the view is very nice. Looks oer the Ottawa River and great view of the Parliament Buildings

We spend a relaxing afternoon in the summer sitting along the water's edge. Great view of downtown Ottawa and you can also see the shoreline of the Quebec side. You can watch people in kayaks and hear the water babbling over the rocks. Very calming.
The only negative were the Canada geese and all their droppings.

#1 place for a picnic in Ottawa! Great views of downtown, and of course you're right in the middle of the Ottawa River.

Pretty Little Island Sanctuary in the Ottawa River. Lot of picnic tables and a view of the downtown skyline. Lots of birds too (gulls, ducks) etc. and it can get a little yucky.
