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.

  • When the city was planning to redevelop this site by constructing new buildings, I remained sceptical. Why redo an altogether attractive Park? When the renovations were completed, I was very surprised to see the result: Stadium renovated, scattered restaurants, cinema, various shops, block condo. Park friendly. My faith, all appeals to the eyes!

  • The Aberdeen pavilion is a really nice space, and you can dress it up or down depending on the event. We went to winter brew, and it was lovely with the little white lights on the Windows and simple wooden bar and booths.
  • Nice place to hang out. Not many clothing shops but you have varieties of restaurants and the underground parking makes it convenient to park and get out for a walk.
  • went to the beer festival at the Aberdeen pavilion for the 2nd year in a row and it was glorious again, but i greatly disliked the switch to using cash to buy tickets vs just digitally loading the bracelet like last year. but the beers were great, but the music was way to loud, this isn't a nightclub its a beer festival id like to be able to talk to people next to me without yelling
  • 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
