Secret Ottawa

The swimming hole in Sand Pits Lake off Pond Street in Rocklife Park. Very small beach, precarious access, but much better than a backyard pool.

Before you go, beware that it is only open until 2pm every day. Don’t want to disturb those afternoon naps. No lifeguards.

  1. McKay Lakers just love it when people publicize their swimming hole. It amazes me how quiet this little secret is. I know many an long-time Ottawan who have no idea we have such a lake (actually 2) right in the heart of Rockliffe. The larger lake has a beautiful walking trail.

  2. The one time I went swimming here, in company with a bunch of Argentinian diplomatic brats, it was well after 2 p.m.
