Andrew Haydon Park is a park on the Ottawa River that is managed by the City of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is situated on Carling Avenue at Holly Acres Road.


There is a bandshell for outdoor concerts and a picnic area. The Nepean Sailing Club is located nearby at adjacent Dick Bell Park. The park features walking trails, play structures, and picnicking.


Migrating Canada geese, brants, ducks, and shorebirds stop over along the marshy edges of the river near the park. Resident Canada geese and mallards also inhabit the park's two ponds.


The park was named after Andrew Haydon, former Reeve of Nepean.


The landscape-architect Donald W. Graham worked on this project.

  • Pros: Excellent place. Very beautiful views. Reasonable bird life for inside the city. Free parking. Best time for a short visit is in the evening. Cons: dog poop on grass. So watch where you sir and careful with hookah smokers. Kids get attracted easily.
  • Walk alone contemplating. Walk hand in hand with your loved one sharing romantic moments. Share glorious time as a group - eat and share recipes. Be in a large group - Bar B Que, savour shared food, play games, sing and dance, have great multiple families' get together. Enjoy the ambience, nature, be happy and share the joys of happiness.
