Fall Clean Up of Iona Park and Hampton Park

This Sunday, September 27th, 11:00am, bring the family and lend a hand to the Hampton Iona Community Group as we do the fall clean up of Iona Park and the playground area of Hampton Park.  Bring your rakes and join in as we start at Iona Park and move over to Hampton when we are finished.  It doesn’t take much time if we have lots of hands!!!

Hampton Iona Community Group has proudly “adopted” Iona Park and Hampton Park through the City of Ottawa’s “Clean Up the Capital” program.

If you have an hour this Sunday we hope we will see you there!!!



  1. The fall clean up will not be the same without the dog owners, as they were prominent in the spring and fall cleanings. I have also noticed that there is a lot more garbage and broken glass now that dog owners aren’t picking it up. Perhaps they will join in on the Iona part, as that seems to be city owned and safe from the harassment and expenditure of the fines of the NCC staff. I doubt we will see many dog-walkers in the Hampton part, though. Maybe the cyclists will fill the gap in the clean-up of the park left by dog walkers.

    It is sad that the park is now so empty of people and action and dogs. I always felt my heart lifted by watching the joyous playing of puppies and dogs.

    Shame on those who have complained. I wonder how often they are using the park. It sure seems barren.
