Route descriptionEdit

The parkway begins at the end of Sussex Drive and follows the Ottawa River, through Rockcliffe Park and past the Canada Aviation Museum. About 200 metres after passing Lower Duck Island, it turns towards the south, passing over Regional Road 174. It ends at the intersection between St. Joseph Boulevard and Bearbrook Road.

Being a federal roadway, the parkway is patrolled by the RCMP instead of the Ottawa Police Service. The posted speed limit is 60 kilometres per hour (37 mph) throughout its length.

HistoryEdit

In 2015, the Rockliffe Parkway was renamed to honour one of Canada’s Fathers of Confederation, Sir George-Étienne Cartier.[1]
