It’s Lansdowne like you’ve never experienced it before!
With the new TD Place stadium and arena, an 18-acre urban park, shopping and event spaces, the City of Ottawa’s newest attraction has something for everyone.
Lansdowne Park is now officially open. Some areas of the park are still under construction, and visitors should use caution. The play area, which includes the play structure and skateboard ramps, is temporarily closed, allowing construction crews time to complete the final touches. It will require at least a week for the installation and curing of the rubberized surface in the play area, which will provide a safer and more accessible play surface.
You are welcome to visit Lansdowne park daily from 8 am to 8 pm. The park will move to regular hours (5 am to 11 pm) when construction finishes in late autumn.
You can access the park from three entrances, although motorists are restricted to the northeast entrance from Queen Elizabeth Driveway. Cyclists and pedestrians can use the additional access via the pathway connection just east of the outdoor rink or at the Bank Street entrance, along Exhibition Way.
Underground parking is not available at this time. During non-event periods, short-term parking for drop-off/pick-up is permitted along the shuttle loop at the northeast entrance.
Public washrooms are available in the Aberdeen Pavilion.
The City’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) department is hard at work designing and scheduling a program of activities and events for the year to come. Upcoming programming will include winter programming at Ottawa’s third refrigerated skating rink, Winterlude 2015 activities, a range of programs with local community partners and a suite of programs to suit the unique spaces in the Aberdeen Pavilion and the Horticulture Building.
The City is looking for input from residents about potential programming at Lansdowne Park. If you have ideas or comments, please send them to parc.Lansdowne.email@example.com.
Come experience the excitement of the new Lansdowne.
