New swing set at Baird Park

The installation of the new swing set at Baird Park is completed and it is ready for use. This project was funded by the City of Ottawa. In 2021, the City has a project scheduled to replace the play structure at Egbert Reitsma Park at the Community Centre.%MCEPASTEBIN%

FHCC update as of July 20

With the area moving into Stage 3, the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre is affected as follows:

Sportsfields (ball diamonds and soccer fields) can continue to be used for casual play.

Ball and soccer leagues are also allowed now to start playing scheduled games if they limit their players in their league to 50 total. Rental time must be booked through the FHCA.

The tennis courts (on the outdoor rink) can continued to be used on a drop in basis.

The playground is now opened.

As per provincial guidelines, no more than 100 people can gather on the Community Centre grounds at any one time, and non-family groups must stay socially distanced.

The community hall building will remain closed for the time being.

There renovations at the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre are complete. The new floor looks great! Thanks for the City of Ottawa for funding this project.
