"Visit the Rideau Canal in Ottawa" Rideau Canal Tip by GrumpyDiver
Rideau Canal, Ottawa: 28 reviews and 62 photos
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal starts (or ends) at the Ottawa River, between the East Block of the Parliament Buildings and the Chateau Laurier Hotel. It's a pleasant stroll in the summer or an envigorating skate in the winter, or just another place to enjoy the fall folliage.
The first set of locks are the Ottawa Locks, then Hartwell's Locks and Hog's Back Locks, which are the last set of locks in the City of Ottawa proper.
Directions: The canal runs through a number of different areas of Ottawa. It starts on the Ottawa River, right between the Parliament Buildings and the Chateau Larier and heads south to Mooney's Bay where it meets up with the Rideau River.
