  • We went in late spring and the Park has several sculptures made with plants. Just wonderful. Does not charge entry and is on the other side of the river. Not to be missed.

It was the last day of the exhibition dedicated to the 150 years of the Canada. This itinerant course traced the history of the Canada through magnificent plant sculptures. Beautiful masterpieces for the pleasure of the eyes...

Where to stay in Gatineau

Overshadowed by the neighboring national capital just across the river, Gatineau itself offers relatively little in the way of accommodations. Most people prefer to stay in Ottawa and simply catch public transportation across the river. If you prefer to stay in Gatineau, you can find a handful of motels along Boulevard Greber, and a few chain hotels farther northeast, just off Boulevard Maloney O.
