Dear Neighbours and Friends of the Park,

The Friends of Macdonald Gardens are registered with the City of Ottawa and for many years we have supported the City's efforts to keep Ottawa clean, green and litter-free!

Our annual Fall cleanup this year will take place on Saturday, Oct 26 between 10am and noon.

We will meet at the circular planter at the Charlotte entrance.  Councillor Mathieu Fleury and his assistant, Stephan Galipeau confirmed to join us and the Councillor's office provided brown leaf bags and garbage bags.

Please note that the City does not take responsibility for cuts and scrapes and neither can the Friends of the Macdonald Gardens Park. We suggest wearing gloves, appropriate footwear and bringing rake/s if you have.

Even if you cannot work, we would like to see you in the Park Saturday morning!  Please show your support and come - say hello to your fellow neighbours.

Look forward to seeing you then,


The Friends of the Macdonald Gardens Park

Your cooperation is much appreciated.
