City prepared for localized flooding
Ottawa – The City of Ottawa is prepared for potential localized flooding in anticipation of the heavy rain in this weekend’s forecast. The City’s Emergency Operations Centre is in Situational Awareness and staff continue to monitor conditions in communities that have experienced flooding in the past.
The City has sand and 280,000 sand bags ready for residents who need them. There are sandbag filling stations at multiple locations throughout the city.
Nothing says spring like the warm sun on your back as you cycle along or enjoy the smell of spring gardening, colourful crocuses and daffodils, lucious green grass, trees buds magically popping with new leaves and SPRING MARKETS! A great day is in store for you with five locations and all of your favorite artisans and farmers. Come to Cumberland Village and enjoy a little rural living.
Finally the weather is cooperating and winter is finally here. The Wilsondale Trails have been set with classic ski tracks and snowshoeing beside the tracks is perfect.
Bring the family for a wonderful afternoon out in the fresh air right here in the village. Access to the trails is from the parking area bordering the western edge of the Cumberland Museum.
Trail conditions can be found at www.wilsondaletrails.com
