Mosaicanada 150 is a must-do for families this summer.
You may remember in April when I had a preview of the amazing outdoor flower and plant sculpture exhibition called Mosaicanada.
Last week, I was invited by Outaouais Tourism to see the final results, and I can tell you they are breathtaking. The scale of each piece, plus the significance and care that obviously went into each one is evident.
I can’t wait to bring the kids to Moscaicanada, I know they will love it. I am including a few pictures, but this is only a sampling of the 45 sculptures in total. I don’t want to post too many because they really should be experienced for themselves.
A few things to note before you go:
-The event if FREE
-The exhibit is open daily from 10 am until 7 pm and is located at Jacques Cartier Park.
-There is a good chance there will be a line to get in. There is a security check in place. But because it’s a walking path, the line tends to move quite well from what I’ve been told.
-The path is about 1 km long and takes about 45 minutes to go through. Sometimes longer if you are reading and exploring. Less maybe if you have kids directing the stops 😉
-Parking may be an issue BUT the STO has FREE parking on weekends and select dates with a FREE shuttle to Mosaicanada (and other sites) available. Visit the STO website for details and to plan your trip! They also have day passes and 3-day passes available.
-Water and snacks for purchase are available at Mosaicanada if you are in need.
-The area is stroller friendly.
-There are some shady areas, but on a sunny day, there’s a lot of sun exposure. Grab hats and sunscreen!
Have fun, and be sure to bring your camera!
