Easily accessible from the Chateau Frontenac, National Gallery or Byward Market; Major's Hill Park offers a great perspective on the Rideau Canal locks, and the Quebec side of the Ottawa River. Well worth the detour. If you have the time there is a nice cafe...More

Nice place to take a break or picnic when downtown and want to escape the noise and all the people. Lots of benches and green space to play games.

Tucked in behind the Chateau Laurier, a great place to rest while visiting all the historic landmarks in the vicinity.

I absolutely love Major's Hill. So gorgeous, so excellent to visit. During Canada Day fesitivities of 2017 it was a bit hectic, but amazing none the less.

A great way to get from The Market over to Parliament Hill. Also a must-stop during Tulip Festival, as this is one of the better locations during the event. Otherwise, this is a great place to stroll, take a rest or have a picnic lunch.

Major's Hill Park is a lovely park in downtown Ottawa. Lots of grassy areas, statues, benches, trees, flowers. I noticed this year there is an outdoor restaurant (Tavern on the Green). A lovely area to look over the Ottawa River.

Went there on the Victoria Day weekend and it was great with all the different color tulips they had planted in one section of the park which is right opposite the Three Watchmen and the National Gallery. Great place to relax on a sunny day...More

This is a beautiful park. There is good reason they take such pride in the care they give it. I enjoyed seeing the northern plants of spring again and all those tulips. Lilac scent hung in the air. It was wonderful. Everyone should spend time...More
