I moved to Ottawa, Ontario in 2003. Having previously visited the city, I knew I would love living here. With all the green space and the hundreds of kilometers of multi-use pathways, the move was an easy decision. On Sundays during the summer months, over 65 kilometers of streets and parkways are reserved for non-motorized use! The city also boasts over 1000 parks. Several provincial parks are within 1-2 hour drive, and Gatineau Park is as close as 20 minutes away! I love that I can enjoy nature while still experiencing the fast-paced culture of a large city.
