The Heron Park Wading Pool is once again open for the season. With all the hot, dry weather we’ve been experiencing in Ottawa this summer, residents are very grateful that they have a place to bring their kids to cool off and have fun.

August Hours of Operation









Wednesday Night Program

Adults, teens, tweens and kids attending the Wednesday Night Program on the steps in front of the fieldhouse/community centre in Heron Park on Wednesday, July 11, 2012.

The Wednesday Night Program continues to evolve.

Originally pitched as an activity evening for at-risk teens and tweens, it has become a popular event for families with young children, and an opportunity for local teens to gain volunteer hours for high school.

We continue to offer structured and unstructured physical activities, food and fun for residents of all ages. Adult supervision provided.  Parents are always welcome.

The WNP is every Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
