NileGuide Expert tip:
Just west of the sailing club, Andrew Haydon Park is a large beautiful city park on the Ottawa River that features a children's water splash pad (in summer), a band shell and other diversions.
While many of the Nepean Sailing Club's facilities are for members only, there are still lots of opportunities for non-members to get a taste of life afloat. This major sailing club, one of the largest in North America, hosts a range of competitions and regattas throughout the year that are open to public spectators. Non-members can also sign up for sail and powerboat training, and the club is well equipped to address the needs of people with disabilities. The location in Dick Bell Park, on Lac Deschenes in the Ottawa River, offers scenic views of the Gatineau Hills.
