Connect to the nature of Mahogany
One of the amazing things about Mahogany is how easy it is to get outside and enjoy nature. Not only will you find over 50 acres of green space, but there’s even more to discover. You now have access to a preserved woodlot, complete with winding multi-use pathways, and a new six-acre park is coming soon to Phase 3 of the community.
When you live in Mahogany, escaping to the great outdoors is easier than ever. Take a stroll down the Manotick Walk – perfect for jogging and biking, too – and delight in the surrounding nature. Soon, you’ll come to charming Manotick Village, where you can relax beside the Rideau River before exploring the shops or grabbing a bite to eat.
Beautiful parks and trails within arms’ reach
Several beautiful parks are featured throughout Mahogany, including Major W. Ross Chamberlain Park, Mahogany Park, and Lela Scharf Park. Major W. Ross Chamberlain Park boasts a large playground for the kids to burn off some steam, a large gazebo to sit out of the sun, plus a large sports field that’s perfect for soccer, football or field hockey.
For more time in nature, take a walk along the pathway bordering Mahogany Creek. Here you’ll find various native plants and trees that have been carefully preserved to maintain the ecosystem around the creek. Children will love the opportunity to explore and – if they’re quick – catch a frog!
Enjoy the Rideau River
Just minutes from your front door is Mahogany Harbour. This is the perfect destination for an impromptu picnic with the kids – or just you and your partner. It’s a fine spot to dip your toes in the cool water while enjoying the natural ecosystem the Rideau River has to offer. If you enjoy water sports, consider taking a canoe or kayak along for a relaxing paddle from the harbour docks.
Further into the village you’ll find Manotick’s most popular attractions, Watson’s Mill and dam. Here, you’ll see plenty of birds and other wildlife, and if you’re lucky (or skilled enough), you may even catch one of the many species of fish that cruise by – including bass, pike or muskellunge. Don’t forget your fishing tackle and licence!
Experience nature through conservation and education
Living in Mahogany means you’re just a seven-minute drive from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) and the trails at Beryl Gaffney Park. A visit to the RVCA is a great way to learn about the Rideau Valley Watershed and their efforts to maintain and preserve the river and habitat for future generations.
Chapman Mills Conservation Area can be found just two more minutes North on Prince of Wales Drive. There is plenty to discover here while roaming their network of pathways and boardwalks. Interpretive signs educate about the flora and fauna of the area, as well as the Authority’s efforts for fish habitat creation to revitalize the river ecosystem.
Whether you enjoy a walk through the community, time on the river or an adventure to discover conservation efforts, Mahogany’s proximity to nature makes it the perfect place to call home. This is just one of the many reasons to choose Mahogany.
