Ottawa's Pedestrian-Friendly Shopping and Dining Hub

Just one block south of the Parliament Buildings, you’ll find Sparks Street, Canada’s first pedestrian mall. Playing host to some of Ottawa’s biggest festivals such as Ribfest, Poutinefest, and the International Busker Festival, this shopping, dining, and event hub is great for a sip and a stroll. Grab a local beer and people-watch at the vibrant Bier Markt, or hit the links at the indoor golf simulator at Mulligans.
