The MPCA would like to thank all who attended the meeting on Monday October 7th at Manor Park School to discuss the proposed changes to the school playing field. It was wonderful to see such broad support for an important community hub from residents, parents, our neighbouring communities in Cardinal Glen, Vanier, Overbrook, and Rockcliffe, and Councillor King.
The OCDSB received clear feedback that Manor Park cares about the school and its greenspace and is willing and eager to work to develop appropriate solutions that work for the school and the community and keep students safe.
Jurgen Hoth prepared an excellent photo essay of the event which captures the spirit of the event – thank you to Jurgen for his work.

The MPCA was present at the MPCC’s excellent Rock the Block event this year with a big thank-you display for the Edible Trees initiative. Metro, Farm Boy, and Orleans Orchard generously donated items for the display. Environment Chair Sheilagh McLean will be tracking the performance of the trees and assisting any tree recipients with questions.

On June 8th, 2019 the MPCA with generous support from Tree Canada and FedEx helped to deliver and plant edible trees throughout Manor Park at private residences and the Yule Manor Co-op. Tree Canada provided staff who brought expertise in tree planting and care, and FedEx staff provided delivery and planting help. Sheilagh McLean of the MPCA was the co-ordinator and she will be following up to ensure that recipients understand how to care for their tree during this first year.
There will be a celebration of the event which will be held during Manor Park Rock the Block on September 8th. Photos of the event can be viewed by clicking here.
