Our shared greenspaces are an integral part to what makes our community an inviting place to live and raise our family.
The City of Ottawa operates and maintains roughly 4,300 hectares of parkland at over 1,300 sites, including 2,000 play structure components.
Are you holding a special event or family reunion? The City’s parks are a great outdoor alternative to being inside. Parks are open daily from 6 am to 11 pm, unless otherwise posted. People in a park while it is closed may be subject to a fine.
Not all parks have parking lots. Some charge an hourly fee for parking. If you choose to park on the street, obey all street signs.
Without a permit, you can only barbeque in designated areas. A designated area has a free standing barbeque pit.
To bring your own propane barbeque to use in a non-designated area, you must obtain a park permit by calling 613-580-2595 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org(link sends e-mail). Barbeques must be kept at least five meters away from any structures.
