Ottawa Park Summit - Organized by Ecology Ottawa

Join us at our inaugural Ottawa Park Summit – 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.

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 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.

The event will be held on Earth Day – Saturday, April 22 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. It will be followed by our first annual Earth Day Celebration starting at 5:00 p.m.

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.
