Tunney's Pasture is a 49 hectares (120 acres) area within the City of Ottawa, Ontario, that is exclusively developed for Canada's federal government buildings. It is bordered by Scott Street to the south, Parkdale Avenue to the east, the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway to the north and Northwestern Avenue to the west. While strictly speaking it is confined to this area, people living in the vicinity of it will often call their neighbourhood Tunney's Pasture.
The complex, home to some 10,000 employees, is served by Tunney's Pasture Station on the transitway.
Famous quotes containing the word pasture:
“On the bare upland pasture there had spread
Oernight twixt mullein stalks a wheel of thread
And straining cables wet with silver dew.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
