See you there!

Easter Egg Hunt – ALLERGY ALERT

It has come to our attention that some of the candy handed out at the Easter Egg Hunt today "May contain Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Wheat, Milk and Eggs." While the ingredient lists do not contain peanuts or tree nuts, we felt it important to communicate this important information as soon as possible.

The HMBCA is updating its food policies for future events.

City Council approves updated “Discharge of Firearms Not Permitted” map

The Half Moon Bay Community Association (HMBCA) Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the City of Ottawa, in an effort led by HMBCA and City Councillor Jan Harder, has approved an amendment for a rezoning that expands the area where the discharge and use of firearms is not permitted. The boundary has now been extended west to Highway 416 and south to Barnsdale Road. This area includes the developments of Half Moon Bay, The Meadows, and Quinn's Pointe. This change is effective immediately. We thank City Council for their quick attention to this matter.

(Rain Date: Saturday, April 11)

We heard a rumour that the Easter Bunny has hidden his eggs at Half Moon Bay Park and needs help collecting them on Saturday, April 4th!

At 10am we're inviting the kids of Half Moon Bay to collect the eggs around the play structures and near the soccer field at Half Moon Bay Park. For every 10 eggs found the kids can exchange them for some chocolate!

Volunteers needed!

The Easter Bunny is also looking for some volunteers to help get ready for the event earlier Saturday morning. Please contact Lisa Noseworthy, Director of Events, at if you can help out.

All outdoor rinks now closed for the season

River Run Park, Half Moon Bay Park, and Freshwater Parkette rinks are now closed for the season due to the warmer weather.

We sincerely thank our rink operators Jeff, Mike, and Keenan and the many volunteers for their hours of shovelling and braving extremely cold weather to keep these rinks going this season.
