Champlain Park Winter Trail Donation

The Champlain Park Community Association has donated $500 to support the Kichi Sibi Winter Trail. It fits several of our community goals, from being a welcoming neighbourhood to civic engagement. It’s nice to see the trail being used to such a great extent by our neighbours and the larger community of Ottawa.

The recent path extension to Scott street gives easier access. Some houses on Northwestern have garden gates that lead directly to the trail, possibly something real estate agents would like to mention. 🙂 For the rest of us, the trail conveniently threads through the rinks in our park and has a turn-around loop at the Champlain Park fieldhouse, though that would be more useful after COVID has abated when we can open the fieldhouse changing room.

The $500 donation cheque leaning on the business end of the grooming equipment. In person that bright LED light is quite blinding, but then it’s needed for night grooming. You just have to go and flatten the snow when conditions demand it.
[Grooming equipment, new skidoo #3 made possible by donations]
Some serious grooming equipment, new skidoo #3, and the somewhat expensive gasoline supply are made possible by donations. Champlain Park Puddle Rink is in the background.
