Photos of Petrie Island Park Trails

An interesting wetland trail on the Ottawa side of the Ottawa River. Very flat. There are occasional nature walk here (like learning about medicinal plants in the marsh) and when we hiked (in early July) we saw lots of turtles, and a pair of beautiful pileated woodpeckers plus other birds. There is a large and popular beach nearby but the water quality in this area is occasionally suspect as its downstream from Ottawa. I prefer the nature trails, which were quite peaceful when we went. One negative may be that you have to pay for parking unless you find parking outside the park (which I did)
