Event Recap: Spring Walk and Talk

Event Recap: Spring Walk and Talk

Better South Keys Centre held its first public event since its creation last fall — a Spring walk and talk tour around the South Keys Centre property. While we had a wonderfully huge turnout and had to split into two groups, we know that many of you weren’t able to make it so we wanted to share a recap.

Greenboro Pathway — The Missing Link

Greenboro Pathway — The Missing Link

Greenboro has an extensive existing network of comfortable multi-use pathways connecting several schools and parks, Greenboro Plaza, Conroy Mall, and the Greenboro Community Centre with its library and facilities. One can walk or bike from Hawthorne Road all the way through to Pebble Road at Pushman Park (just west of Albion Road) through these paths with only a few major road crossings. This is an amazing asset that makes Greenboro a pleasant place to walk and cycle around — it connects the community.

Listening to the Community and Kicking Off ‘Better South Keys Centre’

Listening to the Community and Kicking Off ‘Better South Keys Centre’

After getting lots of interest and questions from his blog on the redevelopment of South Keys Centre, Ottawa South resident Matt Pinder convened a virtual public meeting on November 2, and then a second one on December 9, which brought together neighbours and community members — and not just from the immediate South Keys/Greenboro area. Matt was joined by a wide variety of other Ottawa South residents who use South Keys Centre services today, and who were interested in learning about this redevelopment project and in offering their thoughts.
