About the wall

The Lady Grey Drive retaining wall was built in 1911. It has gone through major repairs over the years, with the most recent repair work completed in 2010.

In 2020, parts of the wall started to collapse near the Ottawa Rowing Club, which led to a partial closure of Lady Grey Drive.
