“Great outing for the Family with Little Ones--”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Get out of the house on a weekend day & see the many flowers- animals & let the kiddies play on the play structures provided- best for smaller kids of 2 - 6 yrs - my older kids of 9 & 11 seem bored these days--

All labeled, and easy to identify and enjoy. And right next door, the largest operational inner city farm ...in the world..with lots and lots for all ages...

“A wonderful retreat in the heart of the city”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Arboretum is a hidden gem in the heart of the city. A huge amount of trees; wonderfully well taken care of, quiet. What more do you want from a park in a city?

“Great escape from the City without leaving the City”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

In the spring all the animals are birthing so there are lots of chances to see babies from all the animals they house at the farm. A nice break from the hustle of the city. And in the summer they have incredible gardens.

“Gotta love trees”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I'm not being sarcastic. It's a lovely place to spend an afternoon, be it strolling, reading or jsut relaxing in some shade. But unless you love trees and nature this might not be for you. It's a gem to have in a large city and I thank Ottawa it's here.
