8 Locks Flat

Canal-side Urban Beach
A quick Bixi bike ride from downtown (Ottawa's bike share program), 8 Locks Flat is a place where you can enjoy a beer while watching the world go by: pedestrians and cyclists on the bike path, kayaks and yachts in the canal, and motorcycles and diplomatic convoys along Colonel By Drive. Peaceful in this mid-week shot, you can escape the crowded market and Parliament Hill circuit.
