A contractor will be on site Saturday April 17 starting at 9 am (to 1 pm) to sweep the courtyard and carport areas.

In order for all areas to be swept, we would like to ask you to move your vehicle from your parking area to the street or in rotation to the visitor parking spots. Please ensure to observe proper physical distancing from your neighbours and the contractor.

Also, if you have any household items that you would like removed, please place them at the front of your carport that day and the contractor will dispose of them. 

We thank you for your cooperation and assistance as the corporation continues its efforts to maintain the property to its highest standards in light of these difficult times.

Chimney cleaning will take place, weather permitting, on Tuesday, September 29. Please read this notice.

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

Repairs to the courtyard pavers will be underway at 8:30 AM this Saturday (October 26).

Please use caution when driving or walking through the courtyard. If you plan to use your vehicle, it might be a good idea to park it on the street before 8 AM.

Your cooperation is much appreciated.

The City of Ottawa will hold a Public Information Session on the construction of the Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel Project, on December 4, 2018 at the Routhier Community Centre. Click the links below for the
