You won’t be able to go for a spring hike in Gatineau Park today.
The National Capital Commission says Gatineau Park is closed until further notice for safety reasons.
The freezing rain, ice pellets and strong winds caused tree branches to fall across the park, creating hazardous conditions.
Gatineau Park will reopen once the NCC deems it safe.
