Renewing Parks & Green Space


Renewing Our Parks & Green Space

Families Community Recreation

Ottawa – Mark Taylor today pledged to continue renewing the parks and green space in Bay Ward. Four years ago much of what we counted on across our city and in Bay Ward was not in good shape. Progress was stagnant and renewal had stalled. Since 2010, we have worked to repair these much needed assets.


Mark has done a lot of great things for the ward, including redevelopment of parks such as Michele Park, establishing a brand new park and is in the process of redeveloping the [Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre], said David Hill, Queensway Terrace North resident.

After a decade of neglect we are renewing parks and green space across our community.

I am really looking forward to the renewal project at Britannia Beach that will benefit the local residents as well as guests to the park,” added Majd El-Samrout, Baja Burger Shack operator.

From neighbourhood projects and complete park renewal to city wide projects, Councillor Taylor has worked hard with residents and partners to make changes that matter to our community, including:

  • Splash pad in George C. Brown Park
  • Renewal of Michele Park
  • Renewal of Bayshore Park including an Ottawa Senators Rink of Dreams
  • Inspiration Park – the first new park in Bay Ward in 25 years
  • Renewal underway in Britannia Park
  • Minor expansion at Maki Park
  • Supported residents in creation of new outdoor rink in Britannia Village
  • Renewal of Woodroffe Walk
  • Upgrades to Kingsmere Park and Lincoln Heights Park


Taylor added, “I am proud to be a part of the Council that has finally brought opening day to a renewed Lansdowne Park and moved ahead on many other city wide parks and recreation facilities.
