I haven’t been there in a while. It is always a bit depressing, however, it is a vital part of Canadian History and people should know about it.

A good collection of pics!

I think a lot of people tussle with that, especially when kids are involved. It is however a VERY kid-friendly place. There were several activities going on for preschoolers yesterday.

If you’re in Ottawa I think it’s a must-see. War is sad, but as you said, it’s a very real part of our history that we need to remember. And with war comes peace, hope, heroism…
lots to think about anyway.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (23) and Sarah (21). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
