Do you remember your first community event? Maybe it was here in the community at one of Old Ottawa East’s regular shindigs such as the Winter Party in the Park or the Main Event. Maybe it was as part of a sports group or partaking in a local barbecue. Maybe you don’t even remember your first community event, but remember the first one your child, grandchild, niece or nephew attended. Want to know how you can get involved?

New Community Centre Clears the First Hurdle!

Discussions have been ongoing for several months between officials of the City of Ottawa Recreation, Cultural and Facility Services Department and The Regional Group, the developer of Greystone Village, to assess the costs and technical feasibility of creating a new community centre in a restored and expanded Deschâtelets Building. The former Oblate Fathers' residence, at 175 Main Street, is an important local landmark and a protected heritage building, which presents both extraordinary opportunities and challenges in adapting it to new uses.
