Visiting Ottawa

The stadium at Lansdowne Park has a majestic location, overlooking the Rideau Canal, which is recognized as a National Historic Site of Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The canal’s waters provide year-round activity – boating in the summer and ice skating in the winter.

Trails along the Rideau Canal provide scenic routes for running, walking, biking and in-line skating. Sights along the trail include the stadium of course, as well as two universities, Dow’s Lake, a series of locks and Parliament Hill.

In addition to Canada’s iconic Parliament Buildings, as the capital city, Ottawa is home national museums, galleries and celebrations.

The Byward Market district in downtown Ottawa will provide a focal point for fans wanting to enjoy the City’s nightlife. Fans will find many pubs and restaurants on the way to the stadium, along Bank Street in the Glebe neighbourhood and Old Ottawa South.

A savvy tourist will discover the unique personalities of Ottawa’s distinctive neighbourhoods with a wide variety of dining and shopping options.

On the Quebec side of the Ottawa River, just 15 minutes north of downtown Ottawa, Gatineau Park offers over 165 kilometres (102 miles) of trails for visitors planning a more active vacation.
