My daughter's wedding party started on a brisk October morning at the ruins on Mackenzie King Estate in Gatineau Park. The colours of the trees and grounds were immaculately groomed. We gathered for many photographs to capture the joy of that beautiful day.

This is a nice estate to explore while in the Gatineau Park. The gardens and lawns are beautifully tended to. It's perfect for a stroll with younger children. The parking costs $12, but if it goes to maintaining the estate, then I'm all for it.

Such a great place to visit when in Canada. Beautiful gardens, very green. It was Mackenzis summer estate in this superb and beautiful area. There are buidings of this area, open to the crowed, to visit and see how people lived in there. Amazing!

No, the only way is by a tour bus organised by a touristic agency, or by car.
