Last weekend we took a drive into Quebec to visit Gatineau Park. The park is a National Capital Region’s conservation park and covers over 361 square kilometres of land. Here’s a few points of interest from our day…
The main reason we came to Gatineau Park was to visit the newly renovated Mackenzie King estate. The estate is named after William Lyon Mackenzie King, who served as Canada’s prime minister for more than 20 years, between 1921 and 1948. He spent every summer at the estate for nearly 50 years, and entertained many guests there until his death in 1950. Today, the estate is open for the public to enjoy.
