Rideau Woodland Ramble
Rideau Woodland Ramble near Burritt’s Rapids is a garden changing experience. As soon as you get out of your car at and gaze up the walk to the gazebo, with symmetrical rows of statuesque conifers on either side, you know you've arrived at somewhere special. You'll find yourself thinking bigger -- in terms of architectural evergreens and graceful flowering shrubs, ponds with fountains, and sculptures tucked among the trees.
“You can walk along one of many "rambles" mapped out by Caron and Dunn, and if you're inspired by what you see, you can likely buy it. They stock about 300 different types of hostas and about 100 kinds of rare conifers, for example, and customers come from as far away as Newfoundland and Windsor. Laura Robin, Ottawa Citizen, 2006
