We are extremely pleased and thankful to the City of Ottawa for an $8,000 grant to build a bridge across the creek on the community's Angus Wilson property next to the museum. We were lucky enough to secure this money from their 2013 budget. This is the first step in a community project to enhance the accessibility to this land by building a network of walking trails while preserving it as a natural park.
Have you or your family ever used the outdoor rink at the community centre. This rink is very popular and is established, maintained and supervised entirely by volunteers. We really need your help to keep this wonderful activity alive.
A huge thanks to Lyle's ongoing effort to get the cross country ski trails ready for you. He has created a map which shows you approximate lengths of the trails as well as access points. As you can see you can get out with even the youngest children who should be able to make a loop.
On Saturday December 7, in bright sunshine and bracing temperature, Santa welcomed hundreds of children and parents to the Maple Hall and Cumberland’s Christmas Market opened its doors at the RJ Kennedy Community Centre and St. Andrew’s United Church at 9 am sharp.
How lucky are we in Cumberland to have for our use land that was donated to the community by the late Angus Wilson. Thanks to an early snow fall and the dedicated work of the Trails Committee Chair, 2 km of trails have been set through the beautiful Angus Wilson park land behind the museum and are ready for use. Bring the family out to enjoy a ski through this lovely area. The conditions are excellent.
