  • Should we make OOS a model community for healthy aging?

    Should we make OOS a model community for healthy aging?

    Seniors Watch of Old Ottawa South believes that healthy aging, community involvement and economic regeneration are synergistic. We would like to demonstrate this by making Old Ottawa South a model age-friendly community as we rebuild from the pandemic. Our group of volunteers are working to identify needs as well as creative responses. We need to hear from everyone - seniors and others - who have an interest in making the neighbourhood an even better place in which to raise their families and grow old.

 SAVE OUR FIREHALL

We’ve come a long way since March of last year.  The Firehall is now offering summer camps and activities and preparing for Fall programs: in person and online. All of us at OSCA (staff and volunteers) thank you for your support and generosity. Your pledges and contributions have surpassed $85,000.

This summer the majority of our summer camps are outdoors at Windsor Park. Safety remains our top priority and we continue to meet and even exceed Ottawa Public Health COVID-19 recommendations. Our staff to child ratio is 1 to 5. We look forward to seeing you again this summer and fall.

A Fantastic Footbridge Finally!

In 1907, one of the arguments to convince residents of the Village of Ottawa East to vote favourably on amalgamation into the City of Ottawa was that was the city would use its influence with the Dominion Government to secure a bridge over the Rideau Canal at Mutchmor Street (Fifth Avenue) connecting to Clegg Street. Only a few years later we have implementation of this capital idea!

History Of The Sunnyside Library

The Sunnyside branch of the Ottawa Public Library is one of the gems of our Old Ottawa South neighbourhood. Much loved and very well used by young and old, it has been in existence almost as long as the entire Ottawa library system itself, but of course it looked very different in the beginning.
