So many trails to explore! Free parking and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Some parking lots have outdoor toilets. Bring your own water/snacks.

It is difficult not to see water or swathes of greenery in Ottawa any place. With Rivers and Canals
and trees all well looked after. This is the Capital City of Canada and it's great. Just the road in from the Airport is preserved and treed. In the winter the Canal is frozen (3" deep) and you can skate for at least 8km if not further. And buy drinks along the way! Even mums come on with prams. Winterlude is Feb -check dates.

The works of a variety of rock/balance artists is intriguing and truly something to be appreciated. The temporal nature of the art work and knowing that it will be swept away by the force of the river is curious. This is really a great show and something to be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Ottawa is so green. The greenbelt is like a lung in the city, with good cycle paths and friendly people (I could have talked to the lock keeper about real ale all day!) Good for a cycle, a walk or a picnic.

I have grown up near the greenbelt - a strip of green, forested and lush greenery through the heart of Ottawa with a well-maintained cycling/rollerblading/walking pathway throughout. You can get pretty much from one end of the city to another on the path...and it ranges through rivers, hills, corn fields, water reservoir, the Experimental Farm, even a golf driving range - if you come to Ottawa, get someone to show you one of the many entrances to the path and then just ride. Beautiful!
