  • It all depends on the day and what you are doing... Tulip festival, great. Canada, great. Photographer trying to catch the Parliament Buildings, great. Other events, great. Otherwise it's just an average downtown park. The views of the river etc are the best part and make it worth a visit.
  • It is a great place to hang out. At the time of major events at the parliament, this is a great place to wach them. Lovely for a picnic on sunny breezy day. Great place to be with kids and family. Nicest views of the ottawa river and the parliament hill.
  • Canada Day celebrations here were excellent. On Normal days it is a nice quiet place to walk and enjoy nature. Very close the Chateau Laurier.
  • You needed a bed? Go to this Comfort Inn. You want a hotel with amenities, find some other location. Rates normally come with breakfast but unless you are a fan of processed scrambled eggs and waffles, then skip the breakfast. There's no exercise facilities to speak of, unfortunately. Rate can be a bit high for what they deliver but since it's closer to downtown, then it will be popular. Customer service is bland.
  • A lovely place for an easy walk. An outstanding view of the Parliament Buildings, the National Gallery, and the Ottawa River
