Some disappointing news came out today from our city councillor Jan Harder about a theft that took place at our new, unopened, Half Moon Bay Park located at Greenbank and Cambrian.

According to a tweet from her, a very expensive mushroom children's ride-on toy, and some shrubs, were stolen from the park. She is pleading for these items to be returned to the Walter Baker Centre.

Details are still emerging, and will be reported here as we gather more information.

In the meantime, we are asking any resident who may have seen anything suspicious to report it to the Ottawa Police at 613-236-1222, ext. 7300.

Also, while out and about in the community tonight, please keep an eye out for these items as there is a possibility that they were "dumped" by the culprits.
