Our neighbourhood is the best kept secret in Ottawa. Situated on the Rideau River waterway, the Hog’s Back Locks join the Mooney’s Bay Lake with the Rideau Canal, which flows peacefully through the nation’s capital. The waterway is a national and UNESCO heritage site. A compelling Rideau River waterfall is surrounded by the lush greenery of Hog’s Back and Vincent Massey Parks. The latter offers picnic areas, bike trails, shady walking paths during hot summer months, and pavilion covers in the rain. The Rideau canoe club, situated alongside the Mooney’s Bay Lake offers recreational facilities and exciting entertainment during summer moths. A famous Dragon Boat Race takes place here every June, and draws animated crowds from all over the country. The neighbourhood boasts incredible amenities including two shopping plazas with grocery stores (one offers international food), health clinic, animal clinic, a bank, two gas stations, Tim Hortons, McDonald’s, Shopper’s Drug Mart, a Tai restaurant, legal services, and much more for residents’ convenience and easy living. Despite its dynamic features, the Hog’s Back area is conducive to reflection, artistic beauty and peaceful living. Photographers and artists of all kinds relish this neighbourhood. Come, sunbathe at the Mooney’s Bay beach, play volleyball with friends, take a stroll, walk your dog, spend quality time with your family, ride a bike, fish…possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
