About Green’s Greek
Green’s Creek, to the east of Ottawa, is an area of unusual geology with steep-sided ravines and plateaux. There are several short ski and hiking trails and a toboggan slide. Green’s Creek also marks the eastern end of the Greenbelt Pathway, which will extend across the whole Greenbelt when finished.
The steep, forested slopes of Green’s Creek and the narrow clay-based flood plain provide an important wildlife corridor. This corridor extends south from the Ottawa River to inland habitats and crossed developed agricultural and urban lands. The creek also supports a wide variety of provincially and regionally rare species, including probably the largest Canadian population of the rare Cat-tail Sedge.
Parking Free, year-round parking is available at the P25 and P26 parking lots.
