It’s been incredible to see so many families, neighbours, businesses and community associations getting involved in Cleaning up the Capital activities over the past few weeks. The group of neighbours pictured above were hard at work at Fringewood Park on Saturday morning. It’s not too late to sign up for a park in your neighbourhood. Visit ottawa.ca/clean and sign up before May 15. Send us a photo of your community clean-up: glen.gower@ottawa.ca

C’est merveilleux de voir autant de gens se regrouper en famille, entre voisins, entre collègues et entre membres d’associations communautaires pour contribuer au Grand ménage de la capitale Glad depuis quelques semaines. Sur cette photo, on peut voir un groupe de voisins à l’œuvre au parc Fringewood samedi matin. Il n’est pas trop tard pour vous inscrire pour nettoyer un parc près de chez vous; rendez-vous à ottawa.ca/menage et inscrivez-vous d’ici le 15 mai! Envoyez-nous vos photos de nettoyage communautaire à glen.gower@ottawa.ca!
