150 Maple Grove Project in our community!

On June 27, come out and welcome our neighborhood’s newest maple grove! Our sesquicentennial anniversary creates an incredible opportunity for special legacy projects.

One of these special ventures is to plant 150 native Canadian maple trees in each of Ottawa’s 23 wards. The trees are sugar, red, and silver maples, and are about 5-7 feet tall. In order to create a true maple tree grove, all 150 trees will be growing and living in the same space.

Our forestry staff have been hard working, and you may have already noticed our new trees at Kingsview Park. Kingsview Park is located at the northern end of North River Road in Vanier along the Rideau River.

In honour of our new maple grove we will be hosting a free community barbecue on June 27th from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. Please join us for hot dogs, freezies and a game of frisbee.

If you can’t make it to our BBQ make sure you check out our beautiful new maple trees another time.

As always if you have any questions or concerns please contact my team.
