Tips from locals
Great spot for amazing views of Parliament, the Canal and the Ottawa River. Many festivals take place in this park and it's a hop skip away from the market.
This pretty park is located near several museums, churches and the Ottawa River.
Seeing the Parliment Hills, the Alexandra Bridge, and the Canadian Museum of History in peaceful greens.

“Arguably the best view in Ottawa. Sit at the feet of the Samuel De Champlain and enjoy a near 360 panaroma. You must take a trail on the west side of the National Art Gallery. No really known to most tourist. ”

“Best little pub in the downtown Ottawa Byward Market. Not easy to find but once you have experienced the amazing french Canadian burgers and fries, you will want to come back again...tomorrow! Amazing menu, friendly staff, great value for the plentiful portions you will get. Please note...this is a small pub for locals, so you must go early especially on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings.”

The historic Parliament buildings with its' iconic green roof stand tall on a hill overlooking Ottawa's River and downtown Ottawa. You can marvel at the beautifully architected Parliament buildings, go for a free tour, and much more. ”
