Spring in Rockcliffe Park

Ottawa's most beautiful neighbourhood bursts into bloom in April and May. There are seas of Scilla, Daffodils and Tulips to adore.

The images above are taken at the corner of Springfield Rd and Mariposa, at Rideau Hall gardens and at the Rockcliffe Park with its stunning views down to the Ottawa River, the Pavilion (also called Gazebo/Teahouse, a popular wedding spot) and its huge yellow sparkling Daffodil fields.

Type in your GPS: Sussex Drive and Rockcliffe Parkway or go to the Internet for a map, park your car, walk the area and enjoy the beautiful vistas.

Rideau Hall Gardens year round:
Rideau Hall is a treasure trove of plants, inspiration and ideas for garden lovers. From the fabulous Victorian greenhouse the functional kitchen garden packed with herbs and vegetables, there is something for every garden enthusiast.
The greenhouse, called the Show House, and the horticultural tours in summer are worth the visit.
