Gatineau Park

Gatineau Park
gtmoexpatlife.wordpress.com/2017/07/10/gatineau-park/ - Culture and Heritage One of the interesting aspects of the Gatineau Park is its long history. It is believed to have been originally occupied by Aboriginal populations dating back to 8,000 years ago. Early industrialists and settlers then came here in the 19th century in their search of resources as well as its proximity to the city. Traces of this historic period are evident throughout this park. They include farmsteads, mines, and Carbide Wilson ruins among others.
