Nice walk destination. Good views, nice pictures. Usually not too busy. May be a bit colder. Easily accessible for anyone willing to walk up a small hill.

From this point you overlook the river and the beautifully located parliament. From the Rideau canal locks to this point is a nice walk. The Ottawa Art Gallery is very near and also the cathedral.

You would spent little time here, it overlooks the Ottawa River to Gatineau, Quebec. Good for pictures.

It is a place from where you can get great views of Downtown, Parliament Hill and Gatineau/Hull. Amazing photo opportunities especially at sunset. At the peak of the hill is a statue of French explorer Samuel de Champlain holding his famous astrolabe upsidedown

One of the best spots to enjoy panoramic views of Ottawa's Parliament Hill, Alexandra Bridge, and Gatineau in Quebec. Best time to go is in the early to mid-morning, when the sun illuminates the entire area nicely. Went there at 8:00 am and was the...More
