Today I headed over to the Rockcliffe Park neighbourhood. Apparently, it’s Ottawa’s wealthiest neighbourhood and I suppose that explains the absence of public transit!

I started my excursion over at the NCC’s rockeries, after strolling through the residential neighbourhood to reach it, and was pleasantly surprised by the fountain and salvaged Carnegie library columns. I spotted a scooter – I don’t see too many of them in Ottawa – and then noticed its owner picking berries. I like the idea of foraging in public spaces; it goes hand-in-hand with local food and urban agriculture trends.

I followed the rockery path and then made my way along Rockcliffe Parkway, along the Ottawa River bike path, and over to Rideau Hall. At the lookout, I did read there was a public tram to the park at one time.

The overcast sky and a bit of light rain made for a comfortable hike.
