Mud lake is an interesting oasis in the middle of Ottawa.

There are some tall deciduous trees in sections and during the spring there are lots of bluebells (or some other blue flower!) - very pretty. It is very flat, and the lake itself seems shallow. Nice, but not spectacular.

So what's the main draw? Birds! This is a major birding site in Ottawa. I have seen all sorts of interesting birds here, from Wild Turkeys, to Wood ducks to woodpeckers to owls. Birders know this is a hot spot and you'll see lots of them. Also lots of families going for walks. A busy site...but nice.
