A monument and plaque commemorating the poets of Canada can be seen at Coronation Park.

As described on the The Poets’ Pathway website, “the Poets’ Pathway is a walking and biking trail of approximately 35 kilometres, much of it on already-existing walking paths through Ottawa. It runs from Britannia Beach, south along Pinecrest Creek, east along  Nepean Creek; it crosses the Rideau River, moves north to the Ottawa River, and ends in Beechwood Cemetery where the poets lie.”

Walk #9 is a walk from Pleasant Park to Industrial Avenue. “It begins near the Ottawa Hospital about 50 metres west of Linda Lane, on the north side of the street. This short path is one of many stretches that preserve the green flow of the path through residential areas.” Follow the directions for the rest of this walk on the Poet’s Pathway website which will take you past some of our favourite sites in Alta Vista and Riverside Park. It ends at the Cancer Survivor Park at the corner of Alta Vista and Industrial.
