Along the Ottawa River Parkway, between the Canadian War Museum and the turnoff to Tunney's Pasture, is the turnoff to Remic Rapids. Here you find a rather interesting and off the wall art collection; balanced stones in the river.

First created in 1986, they are destroyed by the winter weather and the artist returns in the spring to erect new ones.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
