LeBreton Flats Park is the top destination for major celebrations and events in Canada’s Capital Region. The scenic park is located in central Ottawa beside the Canadian War Museum and the Ottawa River.

This popular festival park is about 3.5 hectares in size and can host gatherings of over 40,000 people. The Park offers stunning views of Parliament and sunsets on the Ottawa River. It is also well connected to downtown Ottawa and Gatineau with frequent buses and extensive bike paths. To book an event at LeBreton Flats Park, you will need an event permit.

LeBreton Flats Park is a key piece of the LeBreton Flats revitalization project and was opened in 2007. The Park is located at the corner of the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway (previously known as the Ottawa River Parkway) and Booth Street, just across the Chaudière Bridge from Gatineau. To reach the park by bike, take the Ottawa River Parkway. For those travelling by bus, the Park is located by LeBreton Flats station on the Ottawa Transitway.
