NCC lands include urban parks, parkways, recreational paths, Gatineau Park, the Greenbelt and more. To use NCC land, a permit is often needed.

  • Sporting events
  • Work or community picnics with tents or other structures

An event permit is not needed for picnics without tents and structures. You can, however, reserve a picnic area at Vincent Massey Park.
