Kanata is largely the creation of Bill Teron, a developer and urban planner who purchased over 1,200 hectares (3,000 acres) of rural land and set about building a model community. Unlike other suburbs, Kanata was designed to have a mix of densities and commercial and residential properties. It contained large amounts of open space, and was to be surrounded by a greenbelt. A reflection of the garden city movement, the area was divided into a series of communities, each of which was intended to have its own commercial centres and unique cultures. These include Beaverbrook, Glen Cairn, Bridlewood, Katimavik, Hazeldean, Morgan's Grant, and Kanata Lakes. Kanata is home to the Canadian Tire Centre, The Brookstreet Hotel, The Royal Canadian Legion's national headquarters, Ron Maslin Playhouse, Bell Sensplex, Landmark Cinemas Kanata 24, and the Tanger Outlet Mall.

Orleans is a suburb of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the eastern part of the city along the Ottawa River. Largely a rural area for a great number of years, the first major suburban subdivision constructed in the community was the Queenswood Heights development starting in the late 1960s. Orléans has continued its steady growth as a suburban community since that time; its southern and easternmost boundaries continue to grow as more houses and businesses are built. Orléans has French-speaking population of over 30%. The community's name is spelled with an acute accent in French in the relevant regulation to the City of Ottawa Act, reflective of the area's francophone heritage.

The trail leads to a beautiful waterfall near St-Joseph Boulevard.
