Hi neighbours. This note is an update to Alex’s message regarding the new / refurbished park benches and picnic tables. This truly was a successful team effort, led by Champlain Park resident Dominique Simoneau-Ritchie. Dominique was ably and enthusiastically assisted by residents Alex Smith and Carol Arnason, and Fiona Mitchell, who is Jeff Leiper’s Assistant.

As a result of the team effort, we not only have better furniture. Carol Arnason now has a contact in the City’s Public Works Department. Carol hopes to benefit Park users by fostering this relationship with Public Works, but she needs your help. As a first step, she would like to meet with neighbours who use the play area and pool during the summer. One goal is to involve residents in helping to maintain a safe, clean Park for their kids. Please be in touch.

Carol can be reached at arnasoncarol@gmail.com

Thank you,
