Ottawa is home to some of the loveliest shoreline driveways in the world with the Rideau Canal Driveway, the first beautification project of the capital. This lecture will present the history of the driveways and parkways that grace the Rideau Canal and the Ottawa River, and position their significance as cultural landscapes to be treasured and as a source of pride here and among capital cities.
