Seeped in rich history, the Washington Square Park is not just a green park in Ottawa, but also a historical landmark. It is the famous site where the first Lincoln-Douglas debate had taken place in 1858. A memorial showing two large bronze statues of Lincoln and Douglas in the park commemorates this event. The memorial is erected in the middle of a large reflecting pool. The park is tucked away in large woods, allowing you to rest in shade on a hot scorching day. There are trails here, walking along which will help you easily explore the park. It is also known as the Lincoln-Douglas Park in Ottawa.
