From Issue No. 260 | September 11, 2017

Lowertown East, bounded by Rideau Street, King Edward Avenue and the Rideau River, has been home to many important religious, residential and civic buildings. Despite a controversial 1970s urban redevelopment, it is a walkable neighbourhood with a strong multicultural history.
The tour will focus on the areas built heritage and the stories surrounding three key parks  Anglesea Square, the oldest square in Ottawa; Macdonald Gardens, designed on the site of a cemetery; and Bordeleau Park, reclaimed from the Rideau River.
GUIDE: Nancy Miller Chenier, Co-Chair of the Lowertown Community Association Heritage Committee and long-time resident of Lowertown East
