  • Seniors Watch Old Ottawa South: Launch of Your Local Watchdog for Seniors!

    Last winter, struggling on icy streets on my way to Carleton University, I suddenly felt fear: “Would I make it safely, would I slip or be hit by a car?” And so, petrified, tense and with pounding heart I did manage to reach Carleton’s campus and there, oh great relief, discovered that the sidewalks were fine!

  • A Collaborative Approach to Traffic Issues

    As Old Ottawa South (OOS) grows and changes, traffic patterns also change. This is certainly true in the southwest section of OOS, home of the Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC). The Club has been a fixture of OOS since 1923 and has had to adapt with the times. Many regretted the demise of the lawn bowling component of the Club’s activities but no one can deny the success of the beach volleyball program which has replaced the lawn bowls.
