William Lyon Mackenzie King was Canada's 10th and longest serving Prime Minister. He held office during the 1920s to the 1940s. Upon his death in 1950, he donated his vast estate in the Gatineau hills to the citizens of Canada as a public park. Today the estate is managed by the National Capital Commission. You can enjoy the gardens, the many ruins that Mackenzie King collected and even high tea in one of the PM's cottages (pictured here).

A very well composed picture of this lovely park with beautiful flowers.
The inclusion of the buildings in the background are a bonus,and makes for a pleasing picture.
