Hog’s Back Park

Hog’s Back Park in Ottawa overlooks the spectacular Hog’s Back Falls on the Rideau River.

This urban nature park is surrounded by history. During the construction of the Rideau Canal (1826–1832), one of the most challenging dam-building projects took place at Hog’s Back. In the Park you will find historical displays, as well as a designated heritage pavilion which has been renovated.

The Ottawa Folk Festival, a five-day celebration of music, dance, visual arts and community is held here annually in September.
