Lansdowne Park is a 40-acre (16 ha) urban park, historic sports, exhibition and entertainment facility in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, owned by the City of Ottawa. It is located on Bank Street adjacent to the Rideau Canal in The Glebe neighbourhood of central Ottawa. Lansdowne Park contains the TD Place Stadium and Arena complex (formerly Frank Clair Stadium and the Ottawa Civic Centre), the Aberdeen Pavilion, and the Horticulture Building.
Starting in 2012 the park underwent a major redevelopment. The stadium complex was partially rebuilt. Major retail and residential redevelopments were added to the site. Along the Rideau Canal, the open space which used to be parking was converted into an urban park with green space and recreation facilities. Parking for the site was relocated underground. Basketball courts, a skate park, and water features were also constructed.

Nice little shop. Only went in there to take advantage of the AC that day, it was a hot one and I was working inside the Pavilion next door. Ended up buying a Gelato. Very good and the menu looked very interesting. Sadly I never got a chance to go back and try something else, but I’m sure it would have been very good. The person behind the counter was very friendly and helpful also.
I was there as a vendor for a craft show (613flea) in the Aberdeen Pavilion and I really enjoyed my experience there. Offloading is really easy and convenient (they give plenty of time and 3 different areas to park), the area is beautiful with lots of pedestrian traffic. They allow people to bring their dogs in, which is really cute, parking is available underground, there are places to eat nearby and a small park for kids to play and skateboard. The whole area is kept clean and was warm enough for a cool day off May. They also have 4 gender neutral washrooms in the pavilion, along with the regular ones, which I was really grateful for as a transgender person. I will definitely be back.
