KS – November 2, 2017


Week in Review

Excited to announce that the construction is nearly completed on two new Butterfly Gardens located within two Kanata South parks.  The work remaining mainly consists of installing the benches and signage.  One garden is located by the pond area located closest to Terry Fox Drive and Charlie Rogers Place at the Kanata Recreation Complex and the other garden is located in the new park area being created in the area bordered by Emerald Meadows, Meadowbreeze and Hope Side Road specifically near the pathway that now goes around the Monahan Drain.  Thank you to Mike Russett of our Parks Department and Thunderbolt Contracting for their amazing work on both these gardens.  More info on these unique features will be provided later.


Hewitt Park Pathway

The rehabilitation work along the Hewitt Park multi-use pathway, from Pickford to Pickford, has begun and work is expected to continue until mid November (weather permitting). While the work is ongoing the pathway may be closed off to the public at certain times.  Up to date information can be found on my website at www.CouncillorAllanHubley.ca .
