Rideau Falls Park

At Rideau Falls Park you’ll find an impressive view of the waterfalls that give the Park its name. The twin waterfalls mark the spot where the Ottawa River meets the Rideau River. The Park has several commemorations including the Mackenzie-Papineau Monument, the Commonwealth Air Force Memorial and the National Artillery Monument.

Rideau Falls Park is 2.89 hectares in size and a Confederation Boulevard landmark. It is located at 50 Sussex Drive, a short walk from Rideau Hall. In the 1800s the site was an industrial area powered by the waterfalls. Rideau Falls Park was developed after the Second World War when the area was acquired by the federal government and cleared of industry.

Parking Parking is available at the Park.
