Secret Guardians of Windsor Park

Day and night, 365 days a year, Windsor Park is cared for by incessant secret guardians. The Windsor Park dog walkers seem innocent enough, with their cute pooches and their light banter, but at the heart of every dog walker is a community park guardian.

Clubhouse on a Firm Foundation

Renovation of a century-old building is not for the faint-hearted, especially when the building has survived a century to become an architectural landmark in Ottawa, a monument to a way of life and a gathering place for generations of Ottawa families and friends.
