"Rideau Falls" Ottawa River/Rideau River Tip by sunnywong
Ottawa River/Rideau River, Ottawa: 9 reviews and 34 photos
The Rideau River, just having passed Ottawa's old city hall (now the Canada and the World Pavillion), tumbles into the Ottawa River, cascading over a dramatic sheer waterfall. Early explorers name the river for the French word for curtain, "Rideau." The viewing spot provides great photographic opportunities not just for the Rideau Falls but of the Leamy Lake Ecological Park and the Gatineau River on the opposite Quebec shore.
Address: Sussex Drive at Stanley Avenue
