Commissioners ParkCommissioners Park in Ottawa is home to the Capital’s most dazzling display of tulips. Each May, the Canadian Tulip Festival and the Tulip Legacy Exhibit are held at Commissioners Park. Follow the winding pathways and enjoy the explosion of colour in gardens filled with over 400,000 tulips.

Summer is a wonderful time to take a quiet break at Commissioners Park. The tulips are replaced by thousands of annual flowers, offering beautiful views with Dows Lake in the background.

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