What to expect

Drop in to tour the stables and meet the horses and riders of the world-famous Musical Ride. You’ll have a chance to take a selfie (or two) with a Mountie and their beautiful black horses. You’ll also see demonstrations from the RCMP’s specialized units, take part in family-friendly activities and check out displays of police equipment.

Giving back to the community

Admission is free, but non-perishable food items and cash donations will be collected to support the Ottawa Food Bank. Now more than ever the Ottawa Food Bank needs help. Month after month, they continue to see dramatic increases in the need for their services. Thanks to generous visitors, our 2023 Open House raised more $3,000 and approximately 1,040 kg (2,300 pounds) of food.


Limited free parking is available on site, so use of public transportation is encouraged.
