This year Gatineau’s Cultural Trail is back for its third edition this summer. Inspired by Boston’s legendary Freedom Trail the route is marked by a painted red line that you can follow. And if you haven’t visited the 3 km walking trail in downtown Old Hull, you are missing out! With 700 pinwheels hanging over the pedestrian road it is a stunning sight to see!
The trail starts right across the Alexandra Bridge next to the Canadian Museum of History and takes you to the top tourist attractions, restaurant, bars, stores, and plenty of works of art!
The pinwheel street is early on the Gatineau’s Cultural Trail, so you don’t need to walk the entire 3 km route to reach it. From the start of the trail near the Alexandra Bridge, it will take you roughly 15 minutes to reach the pinwheel covered Aubry Street. When on Aubry Street there are plenty of outdoor patios where you can enjoy a meal or a drink and watch the pinwheels spin.
