There are some #beautiful late- #19thCentury houses around #DundonaldPark, many in a #QueenAnneRevival style. Now another Centretown #park, just three blocks east up #SomersetWest and #MacLarenStreet. I’ve posted many photos from #DundonaldPark before, it being a #wildlife-rich Park. It was named after Douglas Cochrane, 12th Earl of Dundonald, reportedly in 1904. But the #park’s exact age is a bit murky; the oldest buildings around it date to the mid-1890s: 🌳🐇🌲🐿🌳 . 🌳🐿🌲🐇🌳 #Ottawa #613history #igersOttawa #instaOttawa #CentretownOttawa #DowntownOttawa #myOttawa #LoveOttawa #urbanpark #lovenature #Canada150

In June 2003, a #plaque was installed in #DundonaldPark on #SomersetWest opposite this small #apartmentbuilding to mark in important event in #20thCentury history, the #GouzenkoAffair: 🇨🇦🌎🌍🌏 “In 1945, the information Gouzenko handed over to Canadian officials was explosive, but his efforts have gone publicly unmarked until now. “It took several years of lobbying by one dedicated history buff to make it happen. “Andrew Kavchak knows the park that will be home to Gouzenko's plaque well. He lives in the neighbourhood and has spent hours there playing with his son. “It was from this park that RCMP agents monitored Gouzenko's apartment across the street. They were there the night men from the Soviet embassy came looking for #Gouzenko. “ disclosed information that exposed spy rings in Canada, the U.S. and Britain. He also provided code-breaker texts to decipher secret #Soviet messages. “"When we think of the Cold War, we think of big incidents like the Cuban missile crisis, the Berlin blockade," Kavchak says, "but the very first significant international incident didn't happen in Berlin or Washington or London. It happened right here in downtown Ottawa."” http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/gouzenko-honoured-by-plaque-in-ottawa-1.374233 🇨🇦 #Ottawa #613history #ColdWarHistory #history #igersOttawa #instaOttawa #CentretownOttawa #DowntownOttawa #myOttawa #LoveOttawa #Canada150

Now another Centretown #park, just three blocks east up #SomersetWest and #MacLarenStreet, between Bay and #LyonStreet. I’ve posted many photos from #DundonaldPark before, it being a #squirrel-rich Park. It was named after Douglas Cochrane, 12th Earl of Dundonald, reportedly in 1904. But the #park’s exact age is a bit murky; the oldest buildings around it date to the mid-1890s: 🌳🐇🌲🐿🌳 ““Although similar in scale to McNabb Park, Dundonald Park plays a very different role within the community. First established in 1905 as passive recreation space, this role has been retained over the past century. Dundonald Park is an important heritage park in the neighbourhood. Similar to Centretown’s other heritage park, Minto Park, the role of Dundonald Park is to enrich the wider heritage context and act as a community destination for less active recreation. Today, Dundonald Park is one of eight parks being studied across the province by 8-80 Cities (in partnership with the Centretown Community Health Centre) in a two year project to examine how to enhance accessibility and safety for all users.” http://documents.ottawa.ca/sites/documents.ottawa.ca/files/documents/6bcentretowncdp_en.pdf 🌳🐿🌲🐇🌳 #Ottawa #613history #igersOttawa #instaOttawa #CentretownOttawa #DowntownOttawa #myOttawa #LoveOttawa #urbanpark #lovenature #Canada150
