Hogs Back

The Hog's Back Falls, officially known as the Prince of Wales Falls, but rarely referred to by this name, are a series of artificial waterfalls on the Rideau River in OttawaOntario,  The falls are located just north of Mooney's Bay and the point where the Rideau Canal splits from the Rideau River.

Hog’s Back Park in Ottawa overlooks the spectacular Hog’s Back Falls on the Rideau River. This urban nature park is steeped in history. During the construction of the Rideau Canal (1826–1832), one of the most challenging dam-building projects took place at Hog’s Back. In the Park you will find historical displays, as well as a designated heritage pavilion which has been renovated.

Hog’s Back Park is the ideal place for a quiet afternoon picnic and it also has a concession stand for snacks. Take a stroll through the park and enjoy its natural beauty and the views of Hog’s Back Falls and the Rideau River.

The Park was developed in the 1950s and extends over 20.8 hectares. It is located on Hog’s Back Road and Riverside Drive in Ottawa
