"Public Art - Colonel By in Major's Hill Park" Ottawa Favorite Tip by yooperprof

Ottawa General: 186 reviews and 278 photos

  "look what I did!"
by yooperprof

Favorite thing: Colonel John By (1779-1836) was the English military engineer who supervised the construction of the Rideau Canal - and while doing so, was partially responsible for the establishment of the town of Ottawa.

The sculpture - by Joseph Emile Brunet - was dedicated in 1971 - in a prominent location overlooking the Canal.
