Walking is one form of exercise that is available to all of us, even during COVID lockdowns. But walking can be difficult, even dangerous, during an Ottawa winter.
The Council on Aging (COA) in Ottawa has a reporting program called Snow Moles in which local residents describe walking conditions in their areas, especially after a snowfall. These reports ( pdf COA Bi Weekly Report 2 Snow Moles (399 KB) ) are sent bimonthly to the City. And right now the City of Ottawa is reviewing its current winter maintenance standards — making snow mole reports more vital than ever.

The Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club and its grounds are rich in history. The clubhouse reflects early 20th century middle-class life in Ottawa and is associated with individuals and an organization who are notable in Ottawa’s past. As an integral feature along the shore of the Rideau River, and part of the Old Ottawa South community, the clubhouse and grounds are part of the history of sport and society in Ottawa.

You can check out the full plan, or see one-pagers with corresponding feedback forms describing how the draft plan addresses key topics, on engage.ottawa.ca. City planners are seeking the public’s feedback via surveys posted alongside the one-pagers. These surveys are open until February 17, 2021.

The deadline for participating in the City's 15-minute neighbourhood survey has been extended to September 15, 2020. If you haven’t yet had a chance to take the survey, please take a few minutes and do so.
The City survey questions deal with the 15-minute neighbourhood, one of the core concepts for the new Official Plan and asks residents to prioritize the importance of things like schools, clinics, parks and transit. It takes more than access to services to make a neighbourhood a viable, livable 15-minute community though.
