Mooney's Bay Park is a public park in Ottawa, Canada on the Rideau River. Its main entrance is on Riverside Drive, opposite Ridgewood Avenue, but can also be accessed from Hog's Back Road. It has a beach, picnic areas, a children's playground and is the site of the Terry Fox Stadium. Located at 2960 Riverside Drive, year-round activities are available such as swimming in the waters of the Rideau River, biking along paths that can take riders as far as the downtown core, and cross country skiing. A ski school is available, as are indoor change rooms.
In the summer, Mooney's Bay Beach is one of the City of Ottawa's four supervised beaches. The city's Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department set up a swimming area, which is supervised by trained lifeguards from 12pm-7pm each day, from the third week in June until the third week in August.
From mid May until early September, Volleyball nets can be rented for $15/hr or $50/day and Stand-Up Paddleboards can be rented for $20/hr. This can be done from beach and lifeguard staff.
Mooney's Bay is an ideal location for wedding and family photography.
