Local Attractions

Mud Lake

“… Mud Lake is an amazing area of forest and wetlands. Located in Ottawa’s west end, Mud Lake is home to hundreds of species of wildlife, with raccoons, frogs, turtles and foxes, to name but a few. This ecologically significant urban natural landscape is also prime birding territory, with thousands of birdwatchers coming each year to observe hundreds of different species. A walk through this easy-to-access urban jungle provides an exciting escape from city life.”    National Capital Commission


Mud Lake is a prime site for viewing birds with Nature Canada and the Ottawa Field Naturalists’s Club organizing various events throughout the year.
