Thank you to everyone who gave their feedback in the latest round of public consultation for a replacement fieldhouse at Windsor Park. At the time the online consultation closed on 12-November-2021, the working group had received responses from 118 residents of this community. Among these, 29 supported the first option (the biggest one, at 2,466 sq. ft.), 35 preferred the second option (2,394 sq. ft.), while 30 picked the third option (the smallest at 1,507sq. ft.). From the comments provided, an additional 13 respondents wanted a smaller facility supporting outdoor programming only with no indoor programming space, while 11 other respondents felt unable to support any of the three options that were presented.
November 12th Deadline
Your comments are requested on the new fieldhouse designs! OSCA’s Windsor Park Fieldhouse Working Group wants your feedback on three design options it has developed to replace the existing building.

Expanded options are now available in the park with 8 new groupings of waste receptacles for garbage, recycling, and organic waste.
OSCA UPDATE on Windsor Park Fieldhouse Design Proposal and Online Survey of Community Views on the Proposal
In the January 2021 edition of The OSCAR, the OSCA Fieldhouse Working Group reported on progress with the proposed design and location of the Windsor Park Fieldhouse. Since the publication of the article Councillor Shawn Menard and OSCA met with local residents at Windsor Park. This meeting was ad hoc and in response to concerns expressed by residents about the proposed location and design of the Fieldhouse. Several of the issues raised are as follows:
The quest to design a brand new fieldhouse in Windsor Park continues despite the citywide COVID lockdown. The working group struck by the OSCA Board to engage all stakeholders and find a solution carries on with its mission. Our earlier consultations with the community revealed some of your most pressing needs, while our outreach to specific groups—including a targeted survey of residents bordering the park—gave a clearer picture of what is wanted. Now we have created a portal on the OSCA website that allows Old Ottawa South residents a continued opportunity to give us your feedback.
After an initial round of community consultation, OSCA's Windsor Park Fieldhouse Working Group is putting pen to paper on the new design of the Fieldhouse. If you have ideas or suggestions of what the Windsor Park Fieldhouse should include and what kind of programming it should support, now is the time to let us know!
Residents who live near Windsor Park who wish to submit feedback to the OSCA Working Group considering options for the Windsor Park fieldhouse are reminded to please send their comments by April 30, 2020.
