Design plan for multi-use pathway through Brantwood Park and along Rideau River

The City of Ottawa is undertaking a design plan for a new multi-use pathway along the western shoreline of the Rideau River from Onslow through Brantwood Park to the existing pathway that ends at the University of Ottawa’s Lees Campus.

Full details of the proposal and a section by section view of how this pathway will make its way through the Old Ottawa East community can be found on the City of Ottawa's website.

The plan has changed in a number of key ways over previous proposals. In particular, the pathway will no longer go along Rideau Garden Drive and then through Brantwood Park beside the Rideau River. Instead, cyclists will be directed along Bullock, Elliot, and Onslow until they will be directed to the new pathway on the southern side of the Brantwood field house, which will link to the multi-use pathway that will be developed along the river portion of Greystone Village. The pathway surface will be asphalt and the path will be designed to allow for lighting, although whether lighting is actually installed will depend on a number of factors including city budgets.

Further discussion is planned between the City of Ottawa and community stakeholders before a final design plan is approved. For more information or to provide comments, please contact the city's project manager, Luc Frechette, at luc.frechette@ottawa.ca or 613-580-2424, ext 15304, or contact the OECA at info@ottawaeast.ca

Celebrating Rideau Canal Access Points for Paddlers

OECA president Phyllis Odenbach-Sutton joined MP and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna on the Rideau Canal to celebrate two new paddle access points. One will be located at Clegg Avenue (Colonel By Drive), the other at Patterson Creek (Queen Elizabeth Drive). The OECA has long supported better access to the Rideau Canal for all paddlers.
