Site Description and Birding Information: Just across the boundary into North Grenville is this tiny park along the Rideau River. It seems to be used as a primitive boat launch. Watch for Osprey along the river in summer. A branch track leads north from the boat launch area along the treed shoreline. South of the boat launch is a sizable patch of woods with several trails running through it, including one generally along the river. Excellent potential during migrations.
