  • We rode on horseback. Very nice vystrizheny lawns. Many people gather for a weekend soaking up the Sun and relax on the grass.

  • A "hidden" gem in the city. The park is really one of my favourite places downtown. Not only does it have incredible scenery, it is clean and peaceful. I love watching fireworks at Major's Hill Park. I think a lot of people overlook it.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful park to take in the views, read a book or people watch. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown.
  • Amazing park that should be protected from any development. Is far too valuable to be built on.
  • I honestly love this place. Beautiful wide open space with glorious views!
