Major's Hill Park downtown is a big site for tulips as well during the festival. Here some of them surround the statue of Colonel John By. The Connaught Building is behind him, and the Chateau Laurier is to the right.
The Colonel has a fine view of Parliament Hill, as well as the overlook of the Rideau Canal down below that was his design and achievement.
The tulips stretch out in quite a row behind the statue, and this year they were lovely.
This view from the far end gives you a sense of the length of the row. I have more from this park tomorrow.
