Some roads in the Gatineau Park close for the season today. At 5 p.m., the Lake Philippe, Gatineau, Champlain and Fortune Lake parkways will be closed to motorists. The annual winter closure allows the parkways to become cross-country ski trails during the fast-approaching winter months. Cyclists, roller skaters, walkers and runners can take advantage of the car-free roads until the snow falls.
The roads will reopen for cars at noon, May 4, 2018.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/gatineau-park-parkways-closing-for-the-season
