This is the oldest of all of the Parks of the St. Lawrence. Before the St. Lawrence Seaway came into existence, Brown's Bay was the only provincial park between Gananoque and the Quebec border. It continues to be a popular stopping point for travellers to enjoy some outdoor recreation en route between Toronto and Montreal.

Just 20 kilometres east of Ivy Lea Campground on the Thousand Island Parkway is Brown's Bay Beach which offers swimming, picnic, playground and boat launch facilities, and an impressive view of Dark Island's Singer Castle from its beach.

  • Ottawa Valley & Renfrew County
    Ottawa Valley & Renfrew County

    The Ottawa Valley has a number of rivers and valleys interconnected throughout Renfrew County. Criss-crossing the Ottawa River, Bonnechere and Madawaska Rivers, and skirting many lakes, the area has a number of mapped road riding routes. These routes include many options for stops at interesting heritage sites, artists' studios, swimming areas and communities while cycling quiet country roads and enjoying spectacularly scenic forested and often hilly landscape.

    Across the County there are numerous rugged mountain biking trails to challenge oneself, with many of the snowmobile trails converting to multi-use trail systems beyond the winter season. Cyclists can also enjoy off-road recreational riding along abandoned railway beds that include the K&P Trail.

    The powerful and lengthy Ottawa River has a rich history of both First Nations and early settlers. With tributaries flowing in from Algonquin Park, Quebec on the eastern river bed, and the city of Ottawa not far south, it is easy to get to the many cycling and outdoor adventures nearby.
