Ottawa’s Best Public Gardens: Sunflower fields at the Experimental Farm

By Kelly McDonald on August 18, 2020


A field of bright sunflowers immediately say summer. The calm of these mighty florals moving slowly to face the sun (“tournesol”) is a reminder of nature’s wonder. Located on the Merivale and Baseline corner of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s fields, the sunflowers draw visitors for leisurely walks, playful selfies, and reflective moments.

This is the fourth in a series of photo galleries that Ottawa photographer Kelly McDonald is creating for Apt613 this summer to showcase the beautiful public gardens around our city. Get inspired, get out there and enjoy the beauty our city has to offer in this brief season!
