Kanata Old Quarry Trail
Did you know the largest wooded area in Canada’s Capital Greenbelt is located just off Eagleson Road? The Old Quarry Trail is split into two loops – medium (1.9 km) and long (2.7 km) – so you can choose the length that best suits you. In the wetland area, you may be lucky enough to see painted turtles and snapping turtles. You can also bring a picnic to the area along Jack Pine Trail, or try your hand – literally – at feeding some birds!
LUNA Crepes and Café
Food pictures are the backbone of Instagram, so head to LUNA Crepes and Café on March Road for some truly mouthwatering moments. Before diving into some Nutella strawberry banana waffles, a halloumi cheese and zaatar crepe, or an egg and cheese croissant, snap a picture and share it with your friends. If they get jealous, just offer to go with them when they decide to visit!
Canadian Tire Centre “Sens” Sign
If you're a hockey fan, this is the place for you to be. The Ottawa Senators’ rink is in the heart of Kanata, just off Highway 417. Out front of the Canadian Tire Centre arena, there’s a new “SENS” sign perfect for fans to stop and grab a picture with. Across the way is the Tanger Outlet mall, too, so you can make a day of your west-end adventure.
