Maybe the best cycling route in the area

Completed two years ago, the cycling trail along the river is superb, in great condition, lots of flowers, lots of people, and eventually, a lot more action as the area further develops to attract boaters, cyclists and other tourists.

I was indeed fortunate to visit Gatineau. I wish I had more there to explore. I was lucky enough to stop by here and go for a stroll.

A fine view of Ottawa river boating; plus nearby restaurants

This parc and area is great for group visits, including wedding receptions, or else for romantic time out for couples. The nearby restaurants down from St. Francois de Sales church (quite the lovely landmark, visible from up and down the Ottawa and the Gatineau rivers) are well worth the promenade.

Wonderful riverside walkway/bikeway.
sie 2016 • Pary
The city of Gatineau is nearing the end of a three year, 42 million dollar project to improve the shoreline of the Gatineau and Ottawa rivers. This project consists of improved embankments, a bicycle/walkway several kilometres long, lookouts, seating areas and beautification efforts the entire length.

The walkway is adjacent and linked to Parc de la Baie which is home to the annual Montgolfier (Hot Air) Balloon festival.

The ideal place to start the walk is to park in the free parking lot at the corner of Jacques Cartier and Saint Antoine Streets. There is a fountain and plaques indicating the historical significance of this location. The Stirling restaurant is located adjacent.

Departing from here you walk along Jacques Cartier street with the Gatineau River to your right. You will come across rest stops and lookouts over the river and two small marinas. Note the extensive stone work done to stabilise the embankments. Looking to the left as you walk along you will observe many homes that have been significantly restored and renovated along with several restaurants and a “depanneur”. Additionally, you will note archways that indicate two pathways that take you directly to the “Parc de la Baie”.

At the junction of the Gatineau and Ottawa rivers you will have beautiful vistas of the Ottawa river eastbound (left) and the City of Ottawa and Parliament Hill to the right. You can continue on several kilometres on this pathway.

This is a wonderful pathway to enjoy the action on the river, cooling breezes and ample places to enjoy refreshments.
