The Ottawa Greenbelt is a special place where residents and visitors can learn about the natural environment and participate in a range of recreational activities.
The Greenbelt is a 20,350 hectare band of open lands and forests surrounding the nation’s Capital on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River. It was first proposed in 1950 by French planner Jacques Gréber as part of an overall plan to create a beautiful and distinctive setting for the national Capital. The Greenbelt was intended to protect the rural land bordering the Capital from the haphazard urban sprawl typical of so many other cities.
Additionally, Domestic Animals on-leash are permitted, please consult the rules and regulations.
