  • Winterlude 2018 is under way and it still has a way of making it fun for all ages. The location is further East on Laurier street and plenty of available street parking... if you can’t find free parki...  more »
  • How they have the audacity to charge anything for this exhibit is beyond me. Maybe it was too late in the season and the sculptures were not what they used to be but we were all very disappointed. Per...  more »

  • Had a great time at Winterlude. The slides are great this year. There are only the tubing slides this year so might not be as fast as the ice covered last year but still awesome. There is only one slide zone so no mini one for the little ones. The slides are the central piece of the new location. I also saw there was no maze this year, so missing that part of the event.
  • We had been in the summer for the 150. Beautiful floral design. Went back for the snow sculpture display Feb 3rd, we paid 14 dollars to park and 10 dollars each to get in. My issue was the parking fee.. we arrived at about 6:15 PM, it took about 25 mins to see the display and when we went back to the car they were no longer charging to park... what's with that?? We had nobody to ask.. we felt ripped off.
  • Located across from Ottawa this park is a great place to spend time with family and friends. It hosts a variety of events in the summer and winter. Parking can be difficult so I would recommend taking a bus/cab from Ottawa or finding street parking. The parking lot beside the park is paid parking but free in the evening.
  • A small oasis in the city. I went for their floral arrangement celebrating the 150 anniversary and it was gorgeous! All provinces were represented as well as China and may be some other country I do not recall. The creativity and details of the pieces was outstanding! I hope they will organize something like that next Summer! Great for kids and adults!
  • Very disappointed compared to last year. Much smaller and only thing to do was tubing. The lines were long as nothing else physically fun to do. Hopefully better next year. They should move Mosaic to this spot. Booo!
