Walking

There are three publicly-owned places where one can walk along/near the Carp River:  at the Carp River Restoration site in Kanata, in Glen Cairn along Carp Creek, and in Fitzroy Provincial Park in Fitzroy Harbour.

 Carp River Restoration Site Path Along Terry Fox Drive

Between Richardson Side Road and the Queensway lies a 2 km length of the Carp River that was restored in 2016-2018 with meanders, three wet meadows, and a habitat pond.  A paved path with bridges provides an opportunity to walk near the river and restored wetlands.  Learn more.
