#2 of 36 in Shopping in Ottawa
The recently redeveloped Rideau Centre covers all of your shopping needs under one roof. Originally opened in 1983, the mall, which sees over 20 million visitors annually, stretches over three floors and contains around 170 stores. A revitalization project, which commenced in 2013, has seen the addition of a three-level underground parking garage and a large dining hall, which ranges from fine dining to more casual fare.

  • Great mall, but the security is pretty slack. They need to get better control over the homeless people they allow in the mall. I have been asked several times for money while in the food court. Earlier this week a homeless man tried to grab my baby from the stroller, and when I shoved him away he continued walking and tried to grab a woman in the chest (she was able to move out of the way to avoid this). Last week a homeless man was harassing a young family while waiting for the Disney store to open.
  • Good mall with a decent food court. Attached to a main bus hub so it's very easy to get to. It gets a little sketchy at night but good place overall
