Cleaning up Carlington

September 18th, 2014 Comments off

Fall is here and with is comes new Greening activities in Carlington!

Alexander Park

The CCA is pleased to announce that we are renewing our adoption of Alexander Park for five more years. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer gardener and/or helping to develop new initiatives for the park please contact the CCA's Greening Coordinator, Ted Radstake at We would love to have your help!

Once again the City of Ottawa is holding its Cleaning the Capital campaign from September 15 - October 15.

The CCA is taking part with a community clean-up at Alexander Park on Saturday, September 27th from 10:00 am - noon, rain or shine. We will have gloves, pickers, rakes and other clean-up equipment but we need a great team to help keep the park clean and safe.IMG_20140510_093845

Organize a clean-up event with your neighbours

Know another Carlington park that could use some TLC? The city's campaign is open to all so please feel free to organize your own clean-up. Be sure to register your clean-up event with the city so you can take advantage of the great promotional and supply support they offer.

If you do organize an event please tell us and send pictures! We would be happy to post your event in our calendar and help get the word out.
