NCC unveils new plan for Nepean Point

By Ryan Tumilty, Ottawa Metro News, November 23, 2017

Samuel de Champlain will still be looking proudly across the Capital Region, but the grounds around him on Nepean Point are getting a major overhaul.

The National Capital Commission (NCC) selected a winning design for the point at its board meeting on Thursday. The winning project is called Big River Landscape and was designed by Janet Rosenberg & Studio Inc. with Patkau Architects, Blackwell Structural Engineers and ERA Architects Inc. In addition to keeping the current Champlain statue exactly where it is, the proposal adds a pedestrian bridge across St. Patrick’s Street from Major’s Hill Park.
