Enjoy our first “intergenerational” bench at the bus stop on the corner of Bank Street and Hopewell Avenue. Have a seat and chat, to connect with neighbours.

On June 1st, 2019, Senior Watch Old Ottawa South (SWOOS) invited residents of all ages to vote for the best location of a new city bench. Recently the City of Ottawa installed the bench on Bank Street in front of Hopewell Public School.

Benches support healthy everyday routines and build community. This bench, courtesy of Ottawa’s Older Adult Plan, is in recognition of Ottawa’s inaugural Intergenerational Day.  We encourage you to have a seat and chat, to connect with neighbours of different generations.
