Rideau Centre Rooftop Garden

50 Rideau St, Ottawa, Ontario

Stone paths fill the space between large raised beds contained in wide concrete walls which double as seating. Plantings include large, mature trees, shrubs and perennials, creating a green oasis in an unexpected place. With 300 trees, 1.5 km of pathways, grass, flowers, and seldom-seen views of downtown Ottawa, the 1969 National Arts Centre and 1983 Rideau Centre has Ottawa's first large-scale "green roofs". Discover a new perspective of these complex buildings and the heritage buildings and sites that surround them.

Open from 5:30 a.m. until 1 a.m. daily.
