City Water and Country Air: Rockcliffe Park at 150

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - 19:30

Rockcliffe Park has long been a Village within a city setting. Its early history is closely linked to Frederick Law Olmsted, whose remarkable planning philosophy was imported to Canada by entrepreneur T. C. Keefer. Historian Martha Edmond will explore the origins and present character of Rockcliffe with particular emphasis on development pressures that now put the Olmsted/Keefer vision to the test.


Martha Edmond is an historian, author and long-time guide for Heritage Ottawa’s Rockcliffe Park walking tours.
