All RPCA meetings and events are open to the public.


 

Join our live Zoom Q&A session with seasoned gardening professionals ready to help you figure out what to do with those tomatoes you’ve received and that pumpkin that seemed like a good idea for your balcony.

Email your specific questions (keep it to 1 or 2) ahead of time to Kate Cathrae and we’ll do our best to answer them during the meeting: RiversideParkGardening@gmail.com

A follow up session at 7:15pm will allow for live question.

Telsing Andrews has been growing in the Ottawa area for 16 years. She has been an edible landscaper, owned a seed company, was a homesteader and an independent plant breeder. Most of all, she loves watching the ecosystem shift and turn year in and year out.

Patricia Wallinger is a leader in the community advocating for fair working conditions and improvement of the environment. One of the ways that she accomplishes that task is through her company, Amano Gardens, which is a social enterprise and ecologically friendly landscaping business.

This workshop will give you all the basics you need to know to get started in vegetable gardening. I’ll go through soil, watering, feeding, and give you some tips and tricks for discouraging pests from eating your veggies before you do. I’ll also give you some resources to help you throughout the season so that you can feel more confident as harvest time approaches.

This workshop is offered free of charge, but if you are in a financial position to do so a $5 donation (sent via etransfer) would be appreciated. Email: carolinefinegardening@gmail.com to register.

Caroline Agnew is the owner of Caroline Fine Gardening. She’s worked as gardener, treeplanter, and community garden coordinator for nearly twenty years.

She has given gardening workshops around Ottawa through both Just Food and Canadian Organic Growers. She loves teaching about gardening and helping people get the best from their gardens.

Do you have extra seedlings leftover? Did you buy a whole package of peas but only planted a few? Are you splitting up your hostas? Thinning your echinacea? Pots you won’t use?

On May 23-24, 2020, put your extras to the curb! Share what you’ve got and help get our neighbourhood growing!

We have free tomato seedlings to give away to the first 100 Riverside Park residents who sign-up to participate, courtesy of Amano Gardens. If you live between Brookfield Road and the McCarthy Woods, and between the Rideau River and the Airport Parkway, then that includes you.

Confirm your participation and we’ll deliver your seedling this weekend.

A public information session on crime, safety and community policing in Riverside Park will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wed. Mar. 4, 2020 at the Riverside Churches (3191 Riverside Dr., Room 6).

Community Liaison Officer Marcus Cibischino has been invited to share news about changes to Ottawa’s community policing structure and how it will impact our community. It will also be an opportunity for residents to learn about any key issues in our neighbourhood and to ask questions of our local constable.

There is no cost to attend and everyone is welcome.

If you live in Ottawa Mooney’s Bay neighbourhood, you have the opportunity to get active in your community. 

The Riverside Park Community Association has a vacancy for the Riverside Park West Area. Our association gives voice to local residents and works to improve our neighbourhood through advocacy and social events.

Our community association is run by dedicated volunteers, who hold monthly public meetings to discuss community concerns, meet with our city councillor and coordinate community-run initiatives, like traffic calming, family-friendly events, and community skating rinks.

This interim position is a great way to give community involvement a try. The term of office will begin in March and end in October, when an election can be held for a two-year term of office. Read more about this position in the RPCA Bylaws, Articles 5 and 10.

Priority will be given to candidates who live in the Riverside Park West area, but if none come forward, a candidate from elsewhere in the Riverside Park neighbourhood can be elected.

The election will take place at the RPCA Board of Directors meeting on March 4, starting at 7:00 p.m. Candidates simply need to submit a short statement of interest: president@riversidepark.ca

The February RPCA Board of Directors Meeting will take place on Wednesday, February 5 to discuss what’s happening in our neighbourhood and how residents can get involved!

We will be seeing kids on a first come first serve basis but if you can’t make it that’s totally understandable and your email application will still be considered.

We would also like to stress that even if you are not cast as one of the main Giver Kids, you would still be more than welcome to come to the park this summer to volunteer on the build and help the community.

Issue

With the mild spring weather, City crews are repairing potholes and clearing catch basins.

Key Facts

Pothole repairs

  • 18 crews are dedicated to filling potholes across the City.
  • To date in 2015, crews have filled approximately 13,500 potholes across the City.
  • It’s routine at this time of year for potholes to appear, especially with freeze-and-thaw conditions. Rain and mild temperatures following a stretch of sub-zero conditions creates stress on the asphalt road surface which can then form potholes.
  • Residents are encouraged to use the ServiceOttawa gateway at ca or call 311 to report potholes.

 

Catch basins

  • City crews are out clearing snow and ice from catch basins to facilitate water drainage and to reduce pooling.
  • Staff are concentrating on priority roads. Crews are also working on residential streets and responding to service requests as they are received.
  • With 56,000 catch basins in the city, it is appreciated if residents help by clearing catch basins near their home as much as possible and where it is safe to do so.
  • Please report catch basins covered in heavy snow and ice to the City online at ca.
