I wish the bridge wasn’t closed off to the public, it’s so intriguing!

Busy Pathway but lots of beautiful views. Winds its way long the Western Parkway and the Ottawa River. Great for cycling, waking or jogging. The pathway follows the bluffs behind Parliament Hill and The Supreme Court of Canada past Victoria Island, The Canadian War Museum and west out beyond the Deschenes Rapids and Britannia Park to Crystal Beach.
