Old Ottawa East residents came out 26-strong for the annual spring clean-up of the parkland from the Transitway bridge to the Oblate lands.

We have never seen so many helpers. They collected 13 large bags of trash. Along with the regulars, Vicki and Barry Davis, we had 12 from the neighbourhood, including two young ladies, Jada and Lotus, who tried their hands at the pincer picker-uppers.

In the photo, Erin Groulx, Lotus’ mother, takes part in the semi-annual event.

The day before, 20 people with the University of Ottawa Outdoors Club collected at least 10 bags of trash. We wish to extend a huge thanks to all the volunteers.

It was a pleasure to look across the park and see only green and grey. We look forward to doing this again in the fall!
