Activities and Amenities
Peaceful and serene, Mill Pond has six kilometres of wilderness trails. Take a hike through the park and stop for a quiet picnic in the sugar bush or at the covered picnic shelter. Mill Pond has a boat launch (car top only) for those who would like to enjoy a quiet canoe trip.
Please use caution on the water! The Rideau River is part of a busy navigation channel. It is every boater's responsibility to know the hazards along their route and to ensure they have proper safety equipment on board. For a list of required equipment and complete rules and regulations, visit Transport Canada’s Office of Boating Safety and read the Safe Boating Guide.
