CBC Ottawa's Cory O'Kelly is taking residents on a tour of the city's most secret places, some of which many residents walk by — and over — every day.
Tune into CBC TV starting at 5 p.m. or watch this space to view the stories.
Inside the vault
The old Bank of Montreal building on Wellington Street is to undergo renovations next year. But for now the vacant building's main tenant is a collection of artworks.
The promenade hugging Parliament Hill's cliffs was the place to be for strolls and trysts 140 years ago, but is now inaccessible.
From water to rail
The tower on top of the Château Laurier holds a hidden, giant steel water tank and below the hotel is an old tunnel that used to connect with the first railway of its kind in Canada run by the Grand Trunk Railway. The Château Laurier was billed as the railway's flagship hotel.
Underneath the Lafayette
A downtown hotel's basement was once the beginning of a long underground trail between buildings in the Byward Market. A sprinkler system there now protects some downtown heritage buildings.
LeBreton Flats rises again
A part of Ottawa's history is slowly emerging from the ground at LeBreton Flats, revealing the bones of old homes destroyed decades ago.
Hidden burial grounds
MacDonald Gardens Park was once home to one of Ottawa's largest graveyards, and many of the bodies remain there to this day. It's not the only place in Ottawa that was once a graveyard.
