About the Directors:

Kevin Wolfe, Treasurer

Director Area 4: Riverside Park West
(Oct. 2021-Oct. 2025)

Kevin has lived in Riverside Park since 2017 with his wife, teenage son, toddler daughter and two furry friends.  They all love the area and are excited about the potential future developments.  He has previous experience on several charitable boards over the years.  Kevin’s background is in leadership and strategic business development.   Kevin is looking forward to working with the local citizens to make this vibrant community even better.

Gabriel Gonzalez, Secretary

Director Area 1: General Vanier
(Oct. 2021-Oct. 2025)

Originally from Luxembourg, Gabriel moved to Ottawa in 2014 and to the Riverside Park neighbourhood in 2017 with his wife and grumpy cat. With the pandemic, an energetic lab and a new baby at home, Gabriel had the opportunity to spend more time exploring the neighbourhood and meeting neighbours. That’s also how he first heard of the Community Association and grew interested in getting involved to make sure this remains one of the best neighbourhoods to live in Ottawa.

Marianne Ariganello , Director


Director Area 3: Riverside Park East
(Oct. 2023-Oct. 2025)

Marianne Ariganello has lived in Riverside Park for 10 years now. She is the mother of two young kids, both of whom are now in elementary school in Riverside Park. Marianne has a passion for environmental projects and has been involved in Ottawa South Eco Action Network for almost 6 years. She has also been on the RPCA Garden Committee for the past two years. Marianne looks forward to organizing more events in our neighbourhood and building a supportive community in Riverside Park.

Terry Wood, Director

Mail to Transportation Chair

Terry is a retired diplomat who has lived in Riverside Park SE for over 20 years. As chair of the Land Use, Development and Transportation Committee, Terry has lead efforts to address planning, development, traffic safety and transit issues affecting Riverside Park.

Tony Tran, VP Communications

Director Area 1: General Vanier

Oct 2022 – Oct 2025

My wife and I have been a part of the Riverside Park community for just over a year. I have been working in the communications and marketing field here in Ottawa for the past three years.
Since we’ve moved to the community, we’ve been welcomed by so many fantastic people, and it has been a pleasure getting to know everyone. I would like to join the RPCA and help our community wherever I can. You can usually catch me walking around the General Vanier area with my wife Carlene and our dog Ellie.

Rob Vanden Hoven, Director

Director Area 2: Mooney’s Bay

Oct 2022 – Oct 2025

My family has been a part of the Riverside Park community for more than 15 years and we love to enjoy outdoor activities in the area.
I became a RPCA Director last year as I have an interest in ensuring the community outdoor rinks continue to thrive. Over the past year, I supported the rink operators and volunteers who kept the rinks running. I would like to continue to provide my support as a Director in the coming year.

You can usually catch me walking around or playing in the parks in the Mooney’s Bay area.

John Vaissi Nagy, Director


Director Area 2: Mooney’s Bay

Oct 2023 – Oct 2025

John Vaissi Nagy has lived in Riverside Park for over 26 years, where with his spouse Riitta they have raised two children. A retired federal government lawyer, John wants to give back to the beautiful neighbourhood that has been so good to them. In particular, he is committed to ensuring development is designed to make a positive contribution to the neighbourhood.

Dave Coyle, President 

Director Area 5: Revelstoke

Oct 2021 – Oct 2025

As a young, Ottawa-Toronto-Montreal professional couple, we moved our family into the Mooney’s Bay neighborhood some 40 years ago. Raising our family of 6 within the Riverside Park Community was ideal, to now, challenging again, to be extended into USA communities, in order to find meaningful careers.
