Bandshell at Andrew Haydon Park

Andrew Haydon Park is a park on the Ottawa River in the city of Ottawa. 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 Dick Bell Park. It is a beautiful park that features walking trails, play structures & swimming.

Migrating Canada Geese and shorebirds stop over along the marshy edges of the river near the park. Resident Canada Geese also inhabit the park's two ponds resulting in the common feces problem associated with geese in parks.

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

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

Dogs are permitted on leash as pilot project for a period of one year (2009-2010) and will be continued onto 2010-2011 if there are no problems.
