Jacques-Cartier Park

Ottawa, Ontario

Description provided by Editors

Located in Gatineau between the Alexandra and Macdonald-Cartier Bridges, the park has views of the Rideau Falls and the Ottawa skyline. In winter, it’s transformed into a snowy activity park. During the summer, the park is a favourite spot for impromptu sports matches. The small stone house at the western end of the park is thought to have been built by Philemon Wright, founder of Gatineau.
