Organization: National Capital Commission
Timeline for Completion: Ongoing – All seasons
Jacques-Cartier Park, located on Laurier Street in Gatineau, extends over 22.68 hectares, and offers breathtaking views of the Ottawa River and Rideau Falls.
As one of the Capital’s main event parks, it hosts national festivities such as Canada Day and Winterlude.
This park is also great for cycling: from here, you can take the recreational pathway to the Capital’s downtown core, seek out nature at Leamy Lake or explore Gatineau Park — and beyond. In the park, you will find the Hull Marina, which has a public dock for sightseeing and watching the cruise boats.
