Sparks Street is sort of Ottawa's equivalent of Toronto's Hazelton Lanes, except that it also has a few discount stores thrown in for good measure. Sparks Street is the only area near Parliament Hill where you will find a large number of restaurants, souvenir shops and clothing stores. It also contains Parliament Hill's Library and the offices of the Canadian Broadcasting Corportation (CBC). Sparks Street is a lovely pedestrian arcade during the spring and summer, but is a bit desolate during the winter when the potted plants can't survive out of doors. At the end of the shopping arcade, at the corner of Kent and Sparks, there is a high-end shopping mall of a kind in which you can find a Holt Renfew and an LCBO.

Address: Sparks Street
Directions: One street south of Wellington between Kent and Elgin.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
