Project 16: Nepean Point rejuvenation and completion of a Rideau Canal to Rideau Falls waterfront promenade

Nepean Point rejuvenation and completion of a Rideau Canal to Rideau Falls waterfront promenade

The important and picturesque public space of the Nepean Point lookout and park will be renewed and improved as a major Capital destination. The new design will enhance Nepean Point’s stature as a striking physical landmark and lookout, served by better connections to Sussex Drive and Major’s Hill Park, universally accessible pathways, a historical interpretation program, and an improved visual and spatial relationship with the National Gallery of Canada. The NCC will also work with its federal partners and other stakeholders to create a continuous multi-use promenade from the Rideau Canal east to the Rideau Falls, connecting existing public spaces overlooking the Ottawa River.
