Saturday, April 23, 930am-11am (Rain Date: April 30)

Our parks need your help with Spring Cleaning! The Half Moon Bay Community Association has registered six Half Moon Bay Parks for the City of Ottawa’s Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital Campaign.

Freshwater Parkette
River Run Park
Half Moon Bay Park & Stormwater Pond
Regatta Park
Corrigan Stormwater Pond & Park
Tucana Park

We need 12 Captains to help organize the clean up projects at our 6 community parks. We are also looking for community volunteers for each team to help with the clean-up activities.

All families and student volunteers are welcome!

Student volunteer hours can be issued if arranged in advance. To participate as a captain, please contact Kris Raby via Facebook or at parks@hmbca.ca.

Park Safety: We want your feedback

This week the issue of lighting in our parks has been brought up due to an unfortunate event at Half Moon Bay Park. The community has made it clear that violence in our community will not be tolerated and we are all thinking about how we can make our parks safer moving forward.

The Half Moon Bay Community Association wants to help find a solution. We're asking members of the community to submit your feedback to safety@hmbca.ca. We want to hear your safety concerns and ideas; please keep them constructive.

The submissions will be discussed by the HMBCA Board of Directors with the hope of identifying actions items that we can discuss with the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Police.

Everybody deserves to feel safe in their community and we are committed to working with all Half Moon Bay residents to make this happen.

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.
