Great Warm-Weather Activities for Your Family
Being cooped up over the long winter can make you and the kids feel a little stir-crazy. So when the warmer weather finally arrives, we understand how eager everyone is to get outside, burn off some steam and remember what it’s like to feel the warm sunshine on your face. Whether you feel like hitting the road or staying closer to home, we’ve got some great warm-weather activities for your family to enjoy this season in and around Ottawa.
Take advantage of the beautiful weather by visiting Parc Omega. Here you and the whole family can explore the wild, picturesque landscape while discovering some Canadian wildlife like moose, bison, elk, bears and more along the way. There’s also plenty of areas to learn about Aboriginal culture and our Canadian roots.
NOKIA Sunday Bikedays
If you’re eager to take the bikes out for a spin, during the month of May, you’ll find a variety of parkways throughout Ottawa closed to motorists and open to the public to cycle or walk along. This is available every Sunday from May until September. It’s the perfect opportunity to bring out the family for a bike ride without having to worry about vehicles.
Camp Fortune’s Aerial Experience
When you want to really crank up the fun, the aerial experience at Camp fortune will deliver! This gives you and the family a chance to enjoy an intermediate trek through Gatineau Park involving rope bridges and suspended walkways, followed by a giant zip line that you get to glide down afterwards. If you have little ones, you can take them to the Children’s Park instead to enjoy kid-friendly adventures and mini zip lines.
In Ottawa, we’re all about the festivals. And taking in the stunning array of colours at the Canadian Tulip Festival is another fantastic warm-weather activity for your family to enjoy. It’s the perfect event to leisurely stroll through the spring colours, or rent a bike for a guided Tulip Tour.
There are so many fun and entertaining family-friendly activities, festivals and attractions to discover in and around the Ottawa area during the spring. Whether you want to feed the animals, enjoy a thrill-seeking zip line, or explore the outdoors throughout the city, be sure to get out and discover all of the exciting spring activities that our capital city has to offer this season.
