As principal steward of vital public places in Canada’s Capital Region, the NCC regularly seeks to showcase iconic sites that are key to our shared natural, symbolic and cultural heritage. The NCC has partnered with local restaurant entrepreneurs to enhance the experience of our urban parks and shorelines. Each NCC Bistro features a modern design, and offers an exciting assortment of food and beverages.

Both urban park bistro locations are officially closed for the season. See you in spring 2020 for the second year of this two-year pilot project!

Confederation Park

Officially closed for the season. The Bistro in Confederation Park offers an exciting and unique food and drink experience. Located near the Ottawa Locks of the historic Rideau Canal, Confederation Park is a true urban oasis, conveniently tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Ottawa streets. This relaxed urban green space makes this bistro location the perfect place to catch up with friends any day of the week.

Remic Rapids Park

Officially closed for the season. The Bistro in Remic Rapids Park will provide an opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to stop, refuel and enjoy the view of the magnificent rock sculptures by artist John Felice Ceprano. It’s also a perfect spot to relax for a bit, and take in the panoramic views of the Ottawa River a little longer.


Patterson Creek Park Bistro: opening date scheduled for June 2020

The Bistro at Patterson Creek Park is located in a beautifully landscaped park, next to a quiet creek in Ottawa’s family-friendly Glebe neighbourhood. The creek flows into the adjacent Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which, in summer months, is popular with runners, walkers and cyclists.
