Nature / Park
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.

  • Amazing area, have loved this area since I was a child and now that its all redone its amazing! Feels like you are in a much "Grander" city like New York.
  • One of the few places in Ottawa that have a European feel. Nice ambience and good place for dining and shopping. Parking is paid though. Some establishments like Cineplex and Wholesome offer free parking validation.
  • Love seeing the red blacks games, place is clean and has a good selection food products to buy from the vendors.
  • Not as impressive, with just few tulip patches. Not sure if that was it was. There are better patches around here at Toronto or Niagara
  • Very modern structures and soft ground to allow little ones to crawl while their older siblings play. Lots of nice places nearby. Come with plenty of time.in your hands.
