Washka Park

Manotick’s newest park design is seeking your input. Washka Park will be located at 855 Artemis Circle within the new Regional development, Riverwalk, on Manotick Main Street at Century Road. Comments are being accepted until December 14th. Please visit https://tinyurl.com/washkapark to find out more about Washka Park and to see the proposed design.

The name of the park is derived from an Algonquin word. Through the development process, archeologists found sherds of decorated Middle Woodland Period (approximately 500BC) pottery near the water within the development.  The Algonquins were contacted and they chose to name the archeological site with the word ‘washkà’ [wush-KAH], which is their word for ‘crooked’, and in this case acknowledges the zigzag lines impressed in the pottery sherds that were recovered.  As a result, Regional adopted that name for their proposed park.


Beryl Gafney Park

Consultation on possible updates to Beryl Gaffney Park is ongoing and the City of Ottawa wants to hear from you! A Beryl Gaffney Park Master Plan was approved by Council in 2008. Since it was approved, only minor updates have been made to the park.

Your feedback is important to confirm that the approved master plan still meets the needs of our community. Any new ideas that would improve upon the plan are welcome.

An open house consultation was held on July 5, 2018. A synopsis of the feedback received at this meeting is as follows:

  • Conserve and maintain the park as is

  • More trees, remove dead trees

  • Prevent additional soil erosion

  • Additional parking

  • Additional garbage removal

  • Noise abatement

To provide input, please send comments to Beryl.Gaffney@ottawa.ca by January 31, 2019.

Beryl Gaffney Park borders the Rideau River, and is located near the intersection of Prince of Wales Drive and Rideau Valley Drive.
