Comments please: Lynwood Park Project

As introduced at our Annual General Meeting a few weeks ago, we are seeking feedback from the community on the planned park improvement for Lynwood Park.

See the PDF linked below for more detail.

The plan is to have trees and many curved park benches added along the path off Ridgefield as well as some "tennis ball" styled seats which children can climb on.

Please submit your feedback using this google form before March 31st 10:00pm

Lynwood Rink will be Open Friday School PA Day!

Our very hard working rink maintainer "M" and his super-sidekick Bryan have been flooding and working the ice and expect the rink to be open for tomorrows PA/PD day with a new addition: a skating path around the Lynwood Park play structure! So much fun!

Keep checking here for the latest status throughout the winter.


Help by Reporting Crime in Bells Corners

With the recent flurry of crime in Bells Corners, may of us are wondering what we can do to help. Here is the response to this question from Ottawa Police Services community liaison to the Lynwood Village Community Association:

  • If you were able to assist Ottawa Police Service in sending out a message to residence in the area about reporting crimes and suspicious activity to the police.  Reporting incidents to the police is important and provides us with the information needed to identify crime patterns and assists us in addressing crime in the community. 

    Attached is the Ottawa Police Service Contact Us webpage that provides information on how to report incidents to the Ottawa Police Service.

Let's all remember that an active and caring community is a safe and healthy one!
