City wants Feedback on Mooney’s Bay Pavilion, Sparks Street, ByWard Market

Give feedback and get informed about City projects: Week of August 20

The City of Ottawa wants your input on the projects, policies, programs and services that affect your daily life. From open houses to workshops and online consultations, your feedback helps to shape City decisions.

The following opportunities are now available online:

Mooney’s Bay Park Pavilion

  • The City wants to hear from you about what should be considered when planning for the possible renovation or replacement of the Mooney’s Bay Park Pavilion. The Pavilion, which was built in the 1960s, is located at the beach and houses washrooms, change rooms and a restaurant. You can provide feedback in the online survey until August 31.

Sparks Street

  • In July, Sparks Street welcomed a series of new streetscape elements aimed at increasing social interaction and testing some of the public feedback received through the public realm plan’s online questionnaire. The new elements range from public picnic areas to family lounging zones with oversized games, hammocks, beanbags and rocking chairs. City staff will follow the conversation on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Tell us what you think about the additions using #mysparkstreet over the next few weeks and we will consider your feedback for future improvements.

ByWard Market

  • The City launched a public realm study to create a vision for the network of public spaces in the ByWard Market, including streets, sidewalks, parks, squares and plazas. The study will establish a plan to guide future improvements to the ByWard Market’s public spaces, and also set out strategies and partnerships to enliven key public places. Our goal is to beautify, connect and enhance the public spaces, and make them inclusive, safe and inviting. Please take our short survey to share your ideas and help plan the future of the ByWard Market.

The City offers residents a variety of opportunities to share information, consult and collaborate. Stay informed on upcoming engagement opportunities to see your ideas, suggestions and concerns incorporated into the work that impacts you and your community.
