5 Best Places to Sesh in Ottawa

Smoking weed can be a calming and relaxing experience. Whether you prefer a heavy Indica or a strong Sativa, a lot of care and thought should be put into the set and setting you’re smoking in. Your pals at Buzzed Buds have compiled a list of 5 of the best sesh spots to visit if you’re looking to smoke weed in Ottawa.

1. Major’s Hill Park- Mackenzie Ave, Ottawa

Major Hill park features some of the best lookouts in Ottawa, offering gorgeous views of the Ottawa Locks on the Rideau Canal, the Ottawa River, and Parliament Buildings. Grab lunch at one of the many restaurants in the Byward market and have a picnic at the beautiful Major’s Hill Park. Just a quick walk from the best dispensary in Lower town Ottawa, Buzzed Buds Co., the scenic 360-degree views of historic buildings and the Ottawa river offered by this popular location is surely something you won’t regret!

2. MacDonald Garden Park

The Ottawa neighbourhood known as Macdonald Gardens lies in the eastern-most corner of ‘Lowertown East’, tucked away north of Rideau St., west and south of the Rideau River, and east of Cobourg Street. The park features eight acres of grass, trees, and winding paths. The neighbourhood surrounding this park is also one of Ottawa’s oldest, and is equally worthy of study and commemoration. There have been some changes to the park over the years, but the park’s role as a tranquil space for “passive recreation” with paths, open spaces and native trees remains to this day.

3. Stanley Park

Linked with the New Edinburgh Park, Stanley Park is the slightly less popular (but sporty) counterpart. If you’ve just seshed on some Sativa and you’re feeling active, you can kick up a slow game of basketball or tennis at their free courts. The riverside park also features a lagoon, a sculpture trail and dog zone where you can unleash your pet. For a more scenic experience, checkout their awesome dock views.

4. Alexandra Bridge Lookout

Invite some friends, pack some munchies, and you’re on your merry way! The location includes: picturesque views of the Ottawa River, the Chateau Laurier, the Rideau Canal, Parliament Hill, the Peace Tower, the Confederation Building, and the Supreme Court of Canada.

5. Jacques-Cartier Park (Gatineau)

Jacques-Cartier Park is a park in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada, along the Ottawa River. It is at the base of the Alexandra Bridge, facing the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
