The City’s dedication of the footbridge in late June and the casual opening two days later caught many by surprise so the community gathering will allow all of us to celebrate our new connection and glorious public space over the Rideau Canal.
At 4:00 p.m., in the middle of the bridge, community children are invited to bring their scissors and jointly cut the ribbon. Brief remarks from community association presidents will follow. Then all attendees will be invited to the Old Ottawa east/south side for a piece of cake after which they can walk across the bridge to the Glebe side for a glass of lemonade (please bring your own cup/mug to reduce plastic waste).
Short, simple and fun. See you there! Community members worked long and hard to make the bridge a reality. Let’s celebrate.
