Visit the Bistro at Remic Rapids Park

The Bistro provides an opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to stop, refuel and enjoy the view of the magnificent rock sculptures by artist John Felice Ceprano.

Remic Rapids Park was once a popular trading and rest area for indigenous populations and early explorers to Canada. This site provides incredible views of the river, with countless species of flora and fauna in its immediate surroundings.

The Capital’s multi-use paths pass through the park, making it an excellent starting point for exploring the Capital.

Balanced Rock Sculptures

To complement the park’s beauty, artist John Felice Ceprano has created balanced rock sculptures by hand on the river’s edge since 1986. The artist uses fossilized and colourful rocks found on the shore to build these sculptures. They provide the public with a free and exploratory art experience that compliments its natural setting. Over the course of the season, Mr. Ceprano creates dozens of gravity-defying sculptures that will amaze visitors to the park.

The National Capital Commission has supported this program since 2000.
