Westboro Academy is on the Move

Westboro Academy is on the Move

A fixture in Old Ottawa South for the last 20 years the Westboro Academy is on the move. Located in the City of Ottawa’s former training centre building in Brewer Park, in mid-August the school is moving to 1000 Brookfield Road, a former French Catholic elementary school, near Bank and Heron.

OSCAR Contributor Ed Kucerak Wins FCA Award for Media Excellence

The Federation of Citizens’ Associations of Ottawa (FCA), an umbrella organization of Ottawa community associations, has awarded their inaugural Award for Media Excellence to OSCAR contributor Ed Kucerak. The award was for “Excellence in-depth reporting on 2017 municipal/ neighbourhood issues”, and was given for a two-article report Ed wrote for the May 2017 OSCAR. The winning articles looked at the public consultation on Brewer Park’s renewal. The report, comprising two separate articles, included many photographs and interviews with both Councillor David Chernushenko and local residents.


Spring Seedling Sale at Brewer Park Community Garden

Brewer Park Community Garden will be hosting a seedling sale on the May long weekend! Please stop by the garden (located in Brewer Park across from the arena) to buy some seedlings and say hello! We will have tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, peppers (hot and sweet), leeks, and basil for sale at very reasonable prices. All proceeds will go towards the maintenance of our amazing biodome structure, which allows us to extend the growing season into the spring and fall.

Overwhelming Turnout to Public Consultation on Brewer Park’s Future

Originally published in the May 2017 OSCAR.

The first public consultation on Brewer Park’s renewal, which took place on March 23, 2017, demonstrated that the community truly cares about the park’s future. An overwhelming number of local residents turned out to the meeting, all eager to provide their feedback and input.

The meeting was an initial step that marked the start of a multi-year process of listening, planning, seeking funding and then implementing the re-development of the park.
