#7 of 28 in Parks in Ottawa
Lansdowne Park is a 18acre historic sports, exhibition and entertainment facility in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, owned by the City of Ottawa. It is located along Bank Street and is adjacent to the Rideau Canal, in central Ottawa. Lansdowne Park contains the TD Place stadium/arena complex, (formerly Frank Clair Stadium and the Ottawa Civic Centre arena, the stadium being integrated with the arena), the Aberdeen Pavilion hall, and the Horticulture Building. Until 2010, the park was the site of the annual Central Canada Exhibition (Ottawa SuperEx). The site was redeveloped. Around the arena and stadium complex is a retail and residential redevelopment. Along the Rideau Canal, the open space which used to be parking is being converted into an urban park with some recreation facilities.HistoryIn 1847, the then Bytown was deeded acres by the government of the Province of Canada, and acquired another bought from owners over several years, to make up the initial grounds of what is now called Lansdowne Park. Two notable exhibitions occurred prior to the first Central Canada Exhibition. In 1875, the City of Ottawa hosted the thirtieth annual Exhibition of the Provincial Agricultural and Arts Association. In 1877 an exhibition included the first public demonstration of the telephone in Canada.

  • I have had the fortune of being a seasons ticket holder since day one for the RedBlacks games.. The atmosphere is always electrically charged and hyped up... we have become regular visitors to the Bar...  more »
  • Thoroughly enjoy being in this area of Ottawa. With the stadium and ice rink in the area and all the local pubs and eatery's the city has certainly allowed this area to develop into what it is today.  more »

  • Brand spanking new.. Lots of money goes à long way to beautifying the city. If Ottawa did this for all their projects instead of cheaping out things would be great! However the city cheaps out on every corner possible most of the time
  • Love being here on a cold winter night. So many choices for great places to eat
  • Xmas Market is nice to visit during xmas time. During summer a must visit if you are in Ottawa
  • an upscale place where locals go for redblacks & ottawa fury (TD stadium) and movies (cinema cineplex lansdowne) and of course Lansdown Park (skate-bmx park, splash pool, basketball), etc. also home of the wholefood market. if you can find on street parking aroyns marche way, you can use undergeound pay parking. there is free 1 hour parking on the nearby streets. sometimes you need to walk a bit, but it's worth it. some of the free on atreet parking areas are holmwood ave, monk st, fifth ave, clarey ave, fourth ave, tackaberry lane, woodlawn ave, oakland ave, melgund ave, regent at, rupert st, rue o'connor and adelaide st. theyboften cloae their underground parking access for particular game, only allowed those with parking access with game tickets (i find this annoying), but as explained, therw are nearby on street parking locations. personally i prefer adelaide street during games to go to the cinemas. whole food offers free parking for its customers. cineplex also offers 3 hours of free parking for movie goers. validate your parking at the guy who check your cinema ticket. enjoy your visit!!!
  • Was very disappointed that parking was limited to people who had prepaid parking passes just because there was a Football game and a Canada Welcomes The World event happening. Lansdowne is suppose to be a public place for all to enjoy and should be a first come first serve parking. Had to cancel an evening of dinner and movie with 3 other people because we were forced to park off site even though I have mobility issues and can not walk that far.
