If your hotel is close by, then it is worth to visit this island. In this island, it is good to take some photo that shows different view of Parliament Hill. Keep away from the river, water is high and strong after raining.

It has nice paths to walk or to hike, and from it you get great views of the Parliament Hill, of Ottawa river and its rapids, of Hull. A good place to spend some hours or to take some photo shoots

Great place to jog, cycle, and do leisurely strolls. Easily accessible from downtown Ottawa and Gatineau and great views of these cities from the park and Portage Bridge.

I came to Victoria Island at night to figure out it has excellent view on Parliament Hill and Rideau Locks. It also has some historical buildings that were not burned during the great fire. Nice place to stop

This part of Ottawa was the only spot not burnt in the great fire of 1900 century. Great place to visit or picture or for a little rest.

This tiny island is beautiful, with a stunning view of the river and parliament buildings. I especially recommend going during a pow-wow, the native reenactment on this island are great.

It's a nice place to take a walk and check the views from another side. We saw some gooses there. If you are staying in Gatineau this is one of the options to reach ottawa's downtown.
