On the eve of Canada Day, here is some essential information — and handy links — you'll need to navigate Canada 150 celebrations in and around Ottawa.
There will be extensive road closures — more than in previous years — to make room for all the events happening downtown. We've compiled a long list for you, including a helpful map.
If you plan on riding your bicycle downtown, there'll be 200 bike spaces available at Major's Hill Park, along with about 700 existing spaces in the ByWard Market. Remember you'll have to navigate the crowds that'll be walking on closed-off streets.
Free transit, free parking at lots
OC Transpo and ParaTranspo will provide free service all day Saturday.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/canada-day-2017-roundup-1.4185584
