River Ward Community Update
Dear Friends and Neighbours of River Ward,
As we transition to the second half of summer, there are many local events to enjoy outside.
This coming Friday, August 5, there is an all-day party in Raven Park. See details on the final page of this e-newsletter.
Mooney’s Bay Park and Beach continues to be a beehive of activity, with so many park amenities, this is a go-to destination for thousands of visitors every week.
If you prefer a quieter pursuit, both the Carlington Woods and McCarthy Woods’ trails are worth your time. Escape the heat and noise of the City with this natural and tranquil oasis right in our ward. The trails around the Kimberwick, Celebration Park and Wendy Stewart (Sawmill Creek) stormwater ponds are also favourite locations for local residents. If you haven’t visited these before, especially with your children or grandchildren, make it a point this month, you will not be disappointed.
Finally, we can’t miss GreekFest which is offering an abbreviated festival this year, over two consecutive weekends, starting this weekend.
Enjoy the food, entertainment and shopping opportunities, it will be great to see the Festival return to the Hellenic Centre on Prince of Wales in River Ward. Opa!
