Brantwood dock installed

Brantwood Park’s new dock is back home at the foot of Clegg Street and will remain until the end of October when the city will remove it before the return of ice and high water.

The idea to bring a dock back to Brantwood Park began five years ago when Sustainable Living Ottawa East (SLOE) proposed the dock as one of the amenities that would enhance the Rideau River Nature Trail and the desire for a defined kayak-canoe launching site was shared over the years by many others.

The dock is similar to those previously installed at Windsor and Brewer parks: an aluminum ramp hinged to a concrete abutment embedded in the shoreline lands on a large floating raft so that the dock can adjust to varying river levels.
