Gatineau Park (NCC)
Immerse yourself in nature in Gatineau Park, the Capital’s conservation and outdoor recreation park, just 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa–Gatineau. Year-round, enjoy a range of activities —swimming, hiking, biking, camping, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing — as well as heritage sites and nature interpretation. One of the few places in Quebec with such rich biodiversity, the Park is a sanctuary for more than 100 species of plants and animals at risk. Gatineau Park is managed by the National Capital Commission.
