  • Visit Ottawa implies doing some hiking, this park is close to the Château Laurier, the U.S. Embassy and the National Gallery, that is close to the Centre, then we can take good pictures for the Parliament, the river and the bridge. The park itself is very nice with spaces for rest and many varieties of flowers, trees and vegetation, to highlight some flowers calls on Portugal to SARDINHEIRAS that have a prominent place in this park. (does the gardener is Portuguese?!:))

  • A small park in the heart of Ottawa along the whole Parliament Hill. Neat clean you really seems to be in a natural oasis. A walk in the Park you will meet Chalker and their squirrels. A visit or even a siesta at this place is recommended. Then we who have been in the fall we could admire the warm colors of the leaves that characterize this period. If you are in the area trascorreteci a little bit of time.

  • Great ride for two, with family or alone. Great view of the Ottawa River. Sunset. Has a small restaurant of gourmet hot dogs that I thought it was great! Enjoy the ride and make a stop for a hot dog super delicious!

  • 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
