Registration Now Open – Ottawa Park Summit

17 04 13 park summit poster-1

Registration is now open for the inaugural Ottawa Park Summit and Ecology Ottawa would like you to join us at our event – an innovative event that will bring together people from across the City of Ottawa that are active in their local parks to generate ideas and build momentum for better parks in our great city.

In organizing the event, Ecology Ottawa is partnering with Park People, an independent charity that builds strong communities by animating and improving parks. We believe that when communities get involved, parks get better!

The event will be held on Earth Day – Saturday, April 22 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Makerspace North. We will have a brief reception afterward, which will be followed by our first annual Earth Day Celebration starting at 5:30 p.m. at the same location.

You can register for the Park Summit here. 

This event is being organized by a steering committee which includes: Ecology Ottawa, Greenspace Alliance, Just Food, Envirocentre, Sierra Club Canada Foundation, Federation of Citizens’ Associations, Social Planning Council of Ottawa, and Park People.

It is our hope that the Ottawa Park Summit will bring together people involved in a wide range of park-related work, including “adopt a park” groups, community associations, community gardeners, tree planters, and community-builders that work on public health and safety, recreation, economic development and other park-based activities.

This unique event will foster connections between park stakeholders, generate ideas for ongoing cooperation, and build momentum to make our city parks even better! We will hear from city park staff, city councillors and community partners working to turn their public spaces into dynamic community places. This will include keynote speakers on critical issues affecting our city parks as well as breakout workshops on specific issues such as community gardens, park naturalization and tree planting, and investing in local parks.

The Ottawa Park Summit promises to become the leading event for the local parks community. Our goal is to partner with exceptional leaders and organizations who share our values, and who promote positive, sustainable change in our beautiful city and beyond.

We look forward to seeing you there and helping to make parks better together!
