Old Ottawa South's Windsor Rink has some of the best ice in the city thanks to the community volunteers who maintain it. Heavier snowfalls can damage the ice because it can be difficult to remove the snow using only shovels.
If you have a truck with a snow plow and are willing to volunteer your time to help with snow removal after the occasional heavy snowfall, please contact Baalqis Hassan, OSCA's Executive Assistant, at osca [DOT] assistant [AT] oldottawasouth [DOT] ca.
