Walks and Runs – Exploring Ottawa

Wednesday May 30
7:30 am– 8:30 am

Rideau Canal Pathway

Crossing Elgin Street, we’ll make our way through Confederation Park and follow the Rideau Canal. The pathway runs right alongside the canal, and shady trees and colourful flowerbeds line the route. With no roads to cross or traffic to avoid, it’s ideal for a relaxing walk, and a perfect route for runners.

Friday June 1
7:30 am – 8:30 am
Historic Ottawa

Today’s walk will be along Wellington Street, passing the Parliament buildings, the Supreme Court and possibly as far as Library and Archives Canada. Then, for a change of pace, we’ll walk or run back along the Ottawa River to the Ottawa Locks. Built in the early 19th century, the locks connect the Ottawa River to the canal. This will take us back to our starting point, minutes from the hotel.

(All walks start from the lobby of the Lord Elgin Hotel)
