Foy Provincial Park

Located on Red Rock Road across Round Lake from Bonnechere Park, the 148-ha Foy Park is one of the last undeveloped sections of natural shoreline on the lake. Eight forest communities are protected within the Park including remnants of the Hemlock-White Pine and Hemlock-White Cedar forests which once covered large portions of Renfrew County. In addition to an expansive sand beach, significant earth science features within Foy Park include a water-cut terrace and exposed varved clays: both relic lake features. Although currently limited to minimal public use (hiking, bird watching and some boating traffic), Foy Park presents numerous development opportunities reflecting the ever-increasing tourism and recreation features of the Ottawa Valley.
