Ride to Champlain Park to see an outdoor exhibit on Bur Oaks AND a whole lotta Shakespeare going on!

A while back I posted a winter bike route to Champlain Park where one can check out a fascinating outdoor exhibit describing the few remaining majestic Bur oaks within the community that are descendants of an ancient Bur Oak Forest along the Ottawa River.  This month the park is host to a couple of works by Mr Shakespeare! August 9th A Company of Fools will be performing their popular production of Romeo and Juliet, while earlier in the month you could catch Bear & Co’s performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Here’s a summer route to Champlain Park starting from Centretown that follows bike paths pretty much the entire way.

    1. I took it, but it’s not me. That person happened to be standing on the dock along the Gatineau River as I was biking to Lachute early in the morning right around this time last year.
