Perhaps one of the best spots to view the Ottawa River, the Gatineau Hills and Parliament is now the focus of an NCC design competitoin. Located across the locks from Parliament, the spot offers impressive views of Canada’s seat of government and Gatineau.
The NCC is looking for design ideas for a 2.5-hectare area, with the focus on Nepean Point, but with the art path south behind the National Gallery of Canada and part of St. Patrick Street included.
Designs could also include nearby land and possibly a pedestrian bridge connecting Major’s Hill Park. However that work would have to happen in subsequent phases of construction.
