Uplands—Exploring the old Bowesville Road
The old Bowesville Road is one of the most historic roads in the Ottawa area dating back almost to the city's founding. Yet, it is now mostly forgotten. In the early days, it was a life line connecting the wilderness to civilization. Today, officially only half a block remains. As we walk, we will learn about the airport, the Ottawa Hunt Club, the old Canadian Northern Railway and other points of interest now mostly long gone. We will enjoy a leisurely walk tracing some of the remaining fragments of this historic road now superseded by modern Riverside Drive.
