Come and see why the Central Experimental Farm is one of the National Capitalís most visited tourist attractions!

The Farm is located just a few kilometres from downtown Ottawa. Take the Queen Elizabeth Driveway on the west side of the Rideau Canal. After passing Dow's Lake, you will be on Prince of Wales Drive. Continue on this road to the traffic circle at the corner of Prince of Wales Drive and NCC Driveway. At the traffic circle, turn east to the Arboretum, west to the Ornamental Gardens and Museum, or straight through to find lots of parking.

If you are exploring the city by bus, you can ask any bus driver which bus will take you to the Experimental Farm. It is easily accessible.

Admission is free to the Arboretum and Ornamental Gardens and there is free parking. Most areas are handicap accessible.
