TransCanada Trail Bridge Bird Netting Repair

From the Office of the Ward Councillor...

The permanent repair to the TransCanada Trail Bridge (over Robertson Rd as you go from Bells Corners to Kanata) bird netting will begin next week. The contractor will also complete minor warranty work during this time. We anticipate a few days of single lane reductions on Robertson Road in order to complete the work.

There will be no eastbound lane reductions during the AM peak period and no westbound lane reductions during the PM peak period. The bridge will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists at all times. We anticipate that the work will be complete by October 2nd, weather permitting.

Socially Distanced Yoga - In The Park!

”Meditation can help us embrace our worries, our fear, our anger; and that is very healing. We let our own natural capacity of healing do the work.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh
2020 may have been the most stressful year most of us have experienced - some of us may not be aware of how stressed we are. 

Join us in Lynwood Park on SUNDAY AUG 30 [due to rain] @ 10:30am for a free yoga class, a gentle morning stretch, with the theme of melting your stress away. Experienced practitioners extol it's many relaxing techniques - if you haven't tried yoga, give yourself the time for something new...with us!

The class will be lead by Chantal Laberge 
"After maintaining a strong personal practice for over 17 years, Chantal became a graduate of the 200-hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program at Island Yoga Aruba in 2017."
Refreshing juices will be available.
