Nice walk destination. Good views, nice pictures. Usually not too busy. May be a bit colder. Easily accessible for anyone willing to walk up a small hill.

From this point you overlook the river and the beautifully located parliament. From the Rideau canal locks to this point is a nice walk. The Ottawa Art Gallery is very near and also the cathedral.

It is a place from where you can get great views of Downtown, Parliament Hill and Gatineau/Hull. Amazing photo opportunities especially at sunset. At the peak of the hill is a statue of French explorer Samuel de Champlain holding his famous astrolabe upsidedown
