Windsor Park Spring Cleanup

Windsor Park Spring Cleanup

It started as a crappy morning.  Rain (possible thundershowers) and 7° C; what to do? What to do?  Well, it seemed that Brian had picked up the coffee & Timbits, so there was no turning back. After a rather soggy start, we had 25+ brave souls turn up to what turned out to be a fantastic social gaggle and park cleanup.

Bike Rodeo & Rally Just Around the Corner!

Bike Rodeo & Rally Just Around the Corner!

Come rain or shine, on Sunday, June 11, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon, Old Ottawa South will host its first Capital Spokes Bike Rally & Rodeo

The event itself has two parts: a rally and a rodeo. Come to both—the rally begins at 9:00 a.m. at Brewer Park—or come to Windsor Park at 10:00 a.m. where our young cyclists will have an opportunity to demonstrate some of their best riding skills in obstacle courses designed to teach them the safer handling of their untamed bike broncos. Under the guidance of Safer Roads Ottawa, the tennis courts will serve as fenced-in safety corrals to practice turns, bike balance, and hand signals.

Windsor Park Cleanup Spring 2017

Holy Cow! Can you believe it? This was the 20th time we met over a coffee and compost bags to give our parks (Windsor Park plus Linda Thom Park) a "Spring Spruce Up." Along with the usual mayhem from the dog salad, Pete, Brian, Gary, Linda, and Mike lead the interested to rake up, pick up, clean up, and chop down as appropriate. We lucked out with a warm sunny day after a rather soggy previous week.
