Following the bank of the Ottawa River, Sir John A. MacDonald Parkway boasts four lanes, scenic lookouts, small parking lots, picnic areas, and a beach. Whether you explore by car or ride a bike, you'll get clear views of the river and distant shoreline since the area is mostly cleared of trees. A recreational bike path stretches all the way along the parkway (bicycles are also allowed on the road). Westboro Beach offers a chance to rest in a pavilion with a restaurant patio overlooking the river. The parkway closes periodically for motorized vehicles.
