Recreational Opportunities

The Golden Triangle is a small community but there are still opportunities for residents to enjoy recreational activities. The community has two parks available for family picnics or an impromptu pick up game of soccer. The Rideau Canal borders the community and provides opportunity for boating in the summer and skating in the winter. There are also biking and walking paths along the canal that continue further into different parts of the city. Finally, Elgin Street makes up the west border of the community and is affectionately know as the Sens Mile. During the hockey season, the bars and restaurants are packed with people cheering on Ottawa's favourite hockey team. (With that said, there are plenty of Leaf's fans in the city as well. :) )

  • The community is home to the Sens Mile, the place to be when watching an Ottawa Senators game with friends.
