Garden Experience Guide

Commissioners Park

Commissioners Park in Ottawa is home to the Capital’s most dazzling display of tulips. Follow the winding pathways and enjoy the explosion of colour in gardens filled with over 300,000 tulips. Summer is a wonderful time to take a quiet break at Commissioners Park. The tulips are replaced by thousands of annual flowers, offering beautiful views with Dows Lake in the background. Commissioners Park extends over 8.95 hectares and was built from the 1920s to 1950s on the site of a former lumberyard owned by J.R. Booth.
