Ottawa Riverwalk Description

The Ottawa Riverwalk begins downtown and heads northeast along the Fox River. In addition to offering beautiful views of the waterway, there are also boat launches and fishing spots along the way.

On its eastern end, the paved pathway runs through Fox River Park, where you'll find picnic tables, washrooms, a playground, and a 9-hole disc golf course. Just after crossing E. Superior Street, the trail ends at a connection with the Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

A parking lot is available at the east end of the trail near the intersection of E. Superior Street and Ontario Street. There are also two parking lots within Fox River Park, off Hudson Street.

Ottawa Riverwalk Reviews

I have long enjoyed the beautiful Fox River, and been interested in the history of the small towns along the I&M Canal and the Illinois River. Visiting this new trail in Ottawa had me reminiscing a lot about this area and all my explorations of old. M'thinks I'll be coming back to this trail again soon.
