“Trees trees and water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Lovely trees of various species, colours. Lovely location on the Rideau Canal. In the winter time it has a great hill for sliding. Great spot to watch some firework displays from.

“Arboretum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I have been visiting the Arboretum about twice a year, every year for the past 42 years. We took our kids there when they were little. They loved toboggening down the hill in winter. In summer, it is absolutely beautiful with trees, flowers and the river below.

“A tree lovers paradise...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

What a beautiful quiet spot in the middle of Ottawa. Some incredible trees here for the arborephile (is that a word?) both in terms of age, variety, and appearence. Lots of people like to walk their dogs here too. Not an official off leash area, but most of the dogs roaming around were under control. Will visit every time we are in Ottawa.

The price is right too ;)

Fantastic diversity. And a pleasant walk. The scenery is zen-like pastoral.

“A walk in the park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

A lovely park to visit for a picnic, or a stroll along the winding canals. Many different trees, shrubs, and flowers to enjoy.
