Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau is one of the Capital’s main event parks. It is used for national events and festivities such as Canada Day and Winterlude, when it becomes one of North America’s largest snow playgrounds. Jacques Cartier Park offers excellent views of the Ottawa River and Rideau Falls.
Jacques Cartier Park is a great location for cycling. You can take the recreational paths to the Capital’s downtown core or you can seek out nature at Leamy Lake, Gatineau Park and beyond.
