Ottawa Community News: Tree work at Mooney’s Bay Park begins ahead of fitness park overhaul
Thursday, May 12, 2016
City workers will soon be removing trees and shrubs at the north end of the beach at Mooney’s Bay Park, clearing the way for some major changes, including the construction of a brand new play structure.
In a memo sent to residents May 9, River Coun. Riley Brockington said the city has been given the green light to take out 16 trees. All of them will be replaced and five existing trees will be relocated — all at the north end.
The city is also planning to remove three cordoned-off footbridges this spring from the same area as well as take out the existing Sue Holloway Park, an outdoor fitness area that will be rebuilt next year.
