/// a farm in the city


Near by the city of Ottawa Downtown, we can find the Central Experimental Farm. This National historic site with 400 hectares of land was designated in 1887 as an Arboretum and Experimental site. For over a century the city grew around it and the farm maintained its original 19th century landscape, today it is a major tourist attraction. This is another proof that cities not only long streets and buildings, urbanites desire open space, preferably Green ones as opposed to Gray.
