The construction has commenced and the sod is officially turned for the new Hazeldean Gardens retirement residents. The site is on the lands of the former Stittsville Flea Market at 6130 in the heart of Stittsville.
Along with the community, I was pleased to join owners Murray Jackson, Allan Jackson, and Wit Lewandowski at the official ceremony Saturday, September 24th. Also in attendance was Sharron Kavanagh of the Stittsville Flea Market who presented a framed picture of the former Flea Market to the owners in celebration of the site’s heritage (a replica of which sits beautifully in my City Hall office).
At the sod turning, some of the features of the gardens were revealed including an indoor salt water pool, spa, greenhouse, a fully equipped fitness room with on-site physiotherapy clinic, an auditorium, and a protected front entrance with heated sidewalk to deter ice buildup just to name a few.
I look forward to updating residents as construction develops.
