Lansdowne Park Features

Lansdowne Park is a world-class attraction that blends modern amenities, courtyards, heritage buildings and green space. This urban public destination, situated right in the heart of city, will be programmed by the City of Ottawa on a year-round basis. It features events and activities for all ages and all seasons.

Several of the features are still under construction and therefore unavailable. In addition, features that have already opened may be closed temporarily if final touches are needed.

Visitors are welcome to use the park daily from 8 am to 8 pm. Construction will continue into late fall.
