Every fall, as the days get shorter and temperatures drop, vibrant colours take over Ottawa–Gatineau. This spectacular show lasts only a few weeks, but attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to the parks and natural spaces in Canada’s Capital Region.
From the heart of the Capital to the peaceful Greenbelt and beyond, there are many unique and fascinating places to enjoy the fall colours in the Capital Region. In addition to the popular spots in Gatineau Park, there are plenty of hidden gems tucked away from the crowds, especially outside of Gatineau Park, where physical distance is much easier to maintain.
Enjoy the fall colours everywhere in the Capital Region from September 26 to October 25, 2020.
