For Winter, we groomed a fun network of connected paths in the snow, perfect for smaller dogs and those who like to explore! Driveway or on street parking is available with easy access to the backyard. Come relax in our infinity chairs while your pup runs free!! We just ask that you pick up after your dogs before you leave. Doggy bags and a waste container are provided for your convenience! Before or after your visit, feel free to access the Rideau River with direct access to the water for a swim or paddle in the summer, a skate in winter, or just to enjoy the view!
