what a jewel in the centre of Ottawa. Go and plan enough time to wander through the barns as well as the gardens - don't miss the pond in the rose garden! or the hidden path and tiny bridges. They are magical when you are...More
Great place to visit!! Arboretum (Experimental Farm) was amazing!! Love the animals and the farm is really fun for all ages :) The staff is really nice and well organized.

One of our favorite places to take photos and enjoy the outdoors any season of the year. Large gardens, with many varieties of flowers and plants for every season.
