I came up into Major's Hill Park from the north side, and took this view looking over to the National Gallery and Notre Dame. The flower beds had been dug up for the planting of tulip bulbs by this time.
This view looks south towards the Chateau. East Block on Parliament Hill is visible at right.
The foundations of a home are still visible here. This was the home of Colonel John By and his family during the time of the building of the Canal. By is the British military engineer who led the project, and is considered the founder of Ottawa.
A look at the Ottawa River from up here.
Major's Hill Park is a delight to see on a sunny fall day.
Here we have the statue of Colonel By, standing looking west.
A work of art, Twist 1.5, which I've shown before, lies at the southeast portion of the park, with the Connaught Building behind it.
This shot rounds out this visit, taken from the terrace below the Chateau Laurier. A look out onto the Rideau Canal, with fall colours lining up beside the Bytown Museum.
One more shot, this one taken in Dundonald Park, a close up of leaves, taken on another day.
