The Hog’s Back Falls, officially known as the Prince of Wales Falls, but rarely referred to by this name, are a series of artificial waterfalls on the Rideau River in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The falls are located just north of Mooney’s Bay and the point where the Rideau Canal splits from the Rideau River.
Hog’s Back Park in Ottawa overlooks the spectacular Hog’s Back Falls on the Rideau River. This urban nature park is steeped in history. During the construction of the Rideau Canal (1826–1832), one of the most challenging dam-building projects took place at Hog’s Back. In the Park you will find historical displays, as well as a designated heritage pavilion which has been renovated.
