Central Experimental Farm
The Dominion Observatory at the Experimental Farm
I love The Farm, Ottawa's glorious piece of "country in the city"! During this tour, we'll discover its picturesque yet functional landscape. I will reveal its history, design, and stories. I warmly invite you to share your tales of life here on the Farm. Be sure to bring an umbrella in case of rain and wear sturdy, comfortable shoes for walking on grass. Because there is little or no shelter at The Farm, people are advised to wear wide-brimmed hats/sunglasses/sunscreen. If it's a hot sunny day, you may want to bring some water to drink.
