Mackenzie King Estate

There’s so much to discover!

The Mackenzie King Estate is a special place where you can spend the whole day enjoying nature. The Estate has recently undergone a makeover, and features new exhibits as well as activities for the whole family. Now is the perfect time to come and see what’s new at the Estate.

This 231-hectare (2.31 km2) country estate belonged to Canada’s 10th prime minister, William Lyon Mackenzie King. When he died, he bequeathed his estate to all Canadians. It now forms part of Gatineau Park, Canada’s Capital conservation park.

The National Capital Commission (NCC) is responsible for protecting this unique park. One way it does this is by working with partners who are dedicated to conservation. The Mackenzie King Estate is one of the treasures of Gatineau Park.
