Mowat Farm Park - Our Adopted Park
In September, 2014 through the city of Ottawa's "Adopt a Roadway/Adopt a Park" program, IODE Walter Baker Chapter adopted Mowat Farm Park on Fable Street in Old Barrhaven. The Chapter made a 5-year commitment of twice yearly clean-ups and on Sunday, September 28th, 2014, twelve chapter members collected seven bags of trash from the park and had fun participating in the city's Cleaning The Capital fall campaign. Since 2014, twice a year members enjoyed a stroll through the park to tidy up. This project was completed in 2019 with thanks to the Chapter extended from the City of Ottawa.
In an effort to connect our Chapter with other community-minded groups, the Chapter is hoping to be joined on future clean-ups by local Girl Guide units or school classrooms who are looking to do some community service work and to help make their community a cleaner and safer place to live and play.
