Metro Minute with Central Experimental Farm

We’ve already had our first snowfall, but there’s still plenty of nice fall weather left. Go for a jog or a spin on your bike through Ottawa’s Central Experimental Farm, located in the heart of the city.

Established in 1886 as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture, the Central Experimental Farm makes Canada the only country in the world to have a working farm in the middle of its capital.

While it’s an active research centre and home to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada headquarters, it’s also a 400-hectare National Historic Site with attractions open to the public throughout the year.
