This is such a beautiful park to escape to from the busy life of downtown! You see everything from tightrope walkers, to fun family picnics! This park is dog friendly so it's always nice to spot a little pup or two!

This is a very pleasant park to stroll through en route for the Canadian Museum of History and Alexander Bridge. It has great views of Parliament Hill and Chateau Laurier. It is a well kept park and a perfect place to relax for half-an-hour.

This is a nice little park just west of the Byward Market. It has some of the nicest views of the Parliament Buildings and looks over the Ottawa river and the locks. It is especially nice during the tulip festival.
