Reimagining the Fieldhouse at Windsor Park

Reimagining the Fieldhouse at Windsor Park

On November 26, 2019, OSCA hosted a public meeting at the Firehall seeking residents’ views on the future of the fieldhouse at Windsor Park. The meeting was attended by about 30 people including our Councillor, Shawn Menard.

OSCA Board members Michael Jenkin and Luc Pellerin launched a presentation that displayed vividly the fieldhouse’s current dilapidated state, and estimated the potential costs of a renovation and a rebuild. Two flipcharts invited participants’ suggestions for the structural changes, as well as new or enhanced programming in the Park. Each participant was handed six sticky ‘dots’ to then vote for their preferred options in each category, three for facilities (or structures), and three for programming.

The Responsibilities of Pet Ownership in an Off-Leash Dog Park: A Windsor Park Story

Anyone living in Old Ottawa South will appreciate the privilege of having an off-leash dog park. There’s nothing like the freedom to run, sniff, play, and to swim without a leash holding you back! As a pet owner, my little Kenny has enjoyed this privilege since we moved into the neighborhood in the spring of 2017. With this freedom comes pet-owner responsibility, to ensure your dog can be controlled and will not harm other dogs or humans. This includes the responsibility to train your dog especially if your dog is not friendly or is aggressive towards other dogs or humans; otherwise, stay away from an off-leash dog park or muzzle your dog.

Cymbeline, Shakespeare’s Exuberantly Oddball Masterpiece, Plays Old Ottawa South

Set out a lawn chair or a blanket as Bear & Co. brings you a summer outdoor touring production of Shakespeare’s ridiculously over-the-top Cymbeline. Follow a pair of lovers as they react to the mad world around them in a 90-minute version of the play Shakespeare packed with every plot device he could think of: star-crossed lovers, a wicked stepmother, a befuddled king, a loyal servant, separated siblings, wild men, exiled kin, cross-dressing, kidnapping, murder plots, and a Roman invasion.
