  • Cute little parc in the centre of Ottawa directly behind the Fairmont Cháteau Laurier hotel. You can walk around, sit down and chill, have a look across the Ottawa River and/or visit the black squirrels.
  • It's a very beautiful park I stayed here for a few hours just enjoying the view of the Ottawa River and the Rideau Canal from above. It's a very nice place to come and relax on a day off.
  • Beautiful park for a picnic, specially if you come during the Tulip Festival. Short walk to National Gallery (arts museum), Notre Damme Basilica, Nepean Point, and Parliament Hill. Curious Note: This was Ottawa's first park!
  • A beautiful welcoming green space in the heart of Ottawa. Stunning vistas of both Parliament and the Ottawa River.
  • Beautiful and well-maintained park providing scenic views of Parliament Hill, Rideau Canal, and Gatineau, Quebec across the river.
