Spring clean up in Brantwood and Springhurst Parks - May 3

The annual spring clean up in Brantwood and Springhurst Parks is scheduled for Saturday, May 3, from 10 a.m. to noon. This event is rain or shine. Please bring gloves if you have them, bags will be provided.

In Brantwood Park, please meet at the field house. The flooding has delivered more garbage and vegetation than usual. For Springhurst Park and Rideau River Trail Park, meet at the basketball court close to Springhurst. There is a lot of garbage particularly behind the Lees Avenue buildings. Some buckthorn will be pulled for those who like to use weed wrenches.
