As the principal steward and planner of Canada’s Capital Region, the NCC is also the Capital’s official gardener, and is responsible for designing the beds and planting close to one million tulips of 100 varieties, in 120 flower beds, across 30 different locations, every year.

Parks form the picturesque landscape that enriches the Capital’s cultural heritage. Since the 1900s, they have been a key feature in the planning of Canada’s Capital.

Seasonally, the NCC’s parks and green spaces are transformed through imaginative landscape design, and colourful displays of carefully selected plants and flowers in the spring, summer and fall.
