Belle Park is located on the shores of the Cataraqui River and part of the UNESCO-designated Rideau Canal waterway. The current master plan offers, according to the City, a “phased approach to the long-term management of the 80-acre site, and includes increased areas for naturalization, shoreline protection measures and options for recreational activities near the clubhouse and Montreal Street.”
