Favorite thing: Sparks street (downtown Ottawa) was converted into an outdoor pedestrian street in 1966.

It runs from Elgin Street in the east to Bronson Avenue.

Sparks Street is one of Ottawa's more historic streets with lots of heritage buildings.

Fondest memory: Sparks Street is home to the Sparks Street International Chicken & Rib Cook-off every year in late June.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
