Waterfront Access Strategy

The Waterfront Access Strategy will develop an overall long-term vision for enhancing public use and access to the Rideau River and Kemptville Creek. The study will look at the access for boats and kayaks, the waterfront trail network and recreational amenities in and around waterfront parks. The overall vision for an improved waterfront access and park system is supported by the Municipality’s comprehensive framework through the official plan policies, tourism objectives, strategic plan, park and recreation plan, trails strategy and other important design work completed to date (e.g., Terra Marine Walkway project, environmental assessment, etc.).
