A really nice small, quaint park to go to and relax for awhile. Located right in the heart of Ottawa, near the war memorial. We love to just walk through the park when we are downtown running chores.

Every hour there is a changing of the two guards, complete with inspection and bagpipes. The somber mood giving honor to the Canadian soldiers who died in each of the wars as well as the Unknown Soldiers was inspiring. Unfortunately there were a couple of...More

It is a small Square at the end of Elgin St. It is the second most important ceremonial centre in Ottawa. It is the place where you can see the guard changing and some importatn dignitaries when visiting Ottawa

Beautiful park in a great area, on Elgin St. Park can be quite busy in the summer time, but there's lots of space, seating and shade! There are lots of coffee shops nearby and restaurants down the street.
