Summer potluck picnic planned for Ottawa park

July 9, 2018 by  

Ottawa’s Paul Landry Park will be the location of a neighborhood celebration that will give neighbours a chance to have fun in the sun together as they get to know one another a little bit better.

Some brand new structures have been added to the park for kids to play on, and to help introduce the site to local families, a scavenger hunt will be arranged as well. This will lead them around the site and through the patch of wooded lands it contains, and a prize will be given to each person who completes the activity.

Those who come to the community picnic are welcome to bring along a picnic basket filled with their favourite outdoor fare. To help build the community spirit of the occasion, attendees are asked to bring along some extra snacks or other food to share potluck-style with the other guests. Free cold drinks and hot dogs will be served a well.

As a special treat for the attendees at the event, there will be a singalong of Canadian songs, which will be led by a folk singer from the neighborhood. An area printer can supply banner printing and other services for an occasion such as this.

This free community event has been planned for August 25 at 3345 Uplands Drive. All are welcome.
