Check out these Fun Ottawa Picnic Spots

June 17, 2021

Nothing says summer like a picnic! Most of the NCC’s urban parks in Ottawa–Gatineau boast great areas to enjoy a picnic. There are also sheltered and unsheltered picnic areas in the Greenbelt and Gatineau Park. Choose a table, or spread out a blanket on the rolling lawn of one of our parks or by a river shoreline.

Bring your own lunch, or grab a bite at a seasonal outdoor canteen or patio — like an NCC Bistro, the Tavern on the Hill or Tavern on the Falls — all offering locally sourced food.

Check out the map below for great spots to check out for summer family picnics. The map includes directions, accessibility information and if pets are allowed.
