A great way to get from The Market over to Parliament Hill. Also a must-stop during Tulip Festival, as this is one of the better locations during the event. Otherwise, this is a great place to stroll, take a rest or have a picnic lunch.

Major's Hill Park is a lovely park in downtown Ottawa. Lots of grassy areas, statues, benches, trees, flowers. I noticed this year there is an outdoor restaurant (Tavern on the Green). A lovely area to look over the Ottawa River.

Went there on the Victoria Day weekend and it was great with all the different color tulips they had planted in one section of the park which is right opposite the Three Watchmen and the National Gallery. Great place to relax on a sunny day...More

This is a beautiful park. There is good reason they take such pride in the care they give it. I enjoyed seeing the northern plants of spring again and all those tulips. Lilac scent hung in the air. It was wonderful. Everyone should spend time...More

Major's Hill Park is THE reason we stayed at the Chateau Laurier! Dog friendly park with plenty of space, interesting exhibits and beautiful and historic views.

It is near the parliament and very nice. We went during tulip festival. You get a nice view of the parliament building with flowers.

Beautiful area with great views of Parliament hill and the Ottawa/Gatineau River. Lovely flowers and paved trails, great for people with strollers or mobility challenges seeing as they have stairs and inclined walking ways. The bonus for me is that they are dog friendly.

I was there in April and it was still too cold but Iheard that on Sprint its full of tulips... it´s a great area and even with the cold spring you can see many people enjoying the area. Good for a walk.

We had already seen the Parlimant area and then wandered through Byward market. We stumbled across this wide open park and it was a great place to relax. You have great views across the canal to the backside of Parlimant but also great photo opportunities...More
