Blossom Park's Industrial Past



Description

Albionroadradartower

Blossom Park was developed in a hodge-podge manner prior to modern urban planning. We'll discuss how this former Gloucester community, originally completely separate from the City of Ottawa and constrained by the Greenbelt, has changed over the years. We will pass some memorable sites along our walk. Come and enjoy a trip down memory lane.


Route

The route is a straight line along Albion Road with occasional deviations.
