Commissioners Park

(Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: National Capital Commission

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing Seasonal


Commissioners Park in Ottawa is home to the Capital’s most dazzling display of tulips.

Follow the winding pathways, and take in the explosion of colour in gardens filled with over 300,000 tulips.

In summer, the tulips are replaced by thousands of annual flowers, which create beautiful scenic views with Dows Lake in the background.

Located at the corner of Preston Street and the Queen Elizabeth Driveway, Commissioners Park extends over 8.95 hectares. It was built from the 1920s to 1950s on the site of a former lumberyard owned by J.R. Booth.
