From the foot of the locks, tour boats take tourists on cruises of the Ottawa River. Parks with bicycle and pedestrian trails skirt the river and canal. The Parliament Buildings are at the upper left of this picture. At the upper right are complexes of federal government buildings in Hull, Quebec. Up the river in the distance, the river becomes unnavigable for a stretch due to waterfalls and rapids.
