  • Fantastic park with a wonderful history (you can find historic photos online). Probably my favourite in town. The new bridge gives you a great vantage point of the river all year round.
  • Possibly Ottawa's Best Public Park! Lots of places to sit & enjoy the fresh air or the sound of the river. Play structure for the kids. Live entertainment during the Summer. Baseball diamond & Soccer field. Parking available. Public art installations. Pedestrian overpass crossing Rideau River into Vanier.
  • Historic park nice scenery well used packed down paths. Snow cleared walking-bikeing, paths. central yet not busy.
  • Beautiful riverside park. Great that it's a home for summer theatre. Pedestrian bridge is a nice addition.
  • Great park for kids of all ages. Wading pool is only open certain times in the summer so be sure to check, but you can play the time away if you're there too early. Bonus super cool pedestrian bridge nearby!
