“Complete Park”

Mooney’s Bay Park
Ranked #59 of 297 things to do in Ottawa
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 July 2018

We attended the dragon boat races that were held here in late June and the place was a big party atmosphere with a music ban shell, food vendors and of course the races.

The park is used for such events due to its location on the Rideau River ..it has a beach and an extensive play area for the kids making this a great family destination!

If you go to use the beach bring an umbrella...not much natural shade!

My son heard about this park from a TV show and during our trip to Ottawa, he wanted to go. My two kids (10 and 8) are very active and the playground is very cool. It has a very Canadian feel and lots of play structures to keep the little ones busy. Parking is limited and we went in the evening when the heat died down a bit and parking was free. I would have liked more spots for us parents to sit. There is a beach there as well and if we had more time we would have planned to stay there too.

Not much parking here but the park is well worth it in the summer. Lots for young and old including beach volley ball and swimming. It does have a burger shack now that offers some food.

Mooney's Bay Park is a public park in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on the Rideau River. Its main entrance is on Riverside Drive, opposite Ridgewood Avenue, but can also be accessed from Hog's Back Road. It has a pretty large playground for kids and lots of scenes for photography lovers.
