Explore the colourful, historic gardens designed by radical leader of French Canadians, Louis-Joseph Papineau. Known for his passion for politics, Papineau also shared a love for botany. He designed the landscaping with inspiration from the English gardens he visited.
Admire the blooming landscapes as you walk these beautiful garden paths and who knows? You might even bump into the Gardener Papineau this summer!
Top off your visit with a picnic in front of the house and admire the oak tree who has seen nearly 300 years of history. Sit at the picnic tables or on the garden lawn and relax as you admire the breathtaking views of the Ottawa River.
