This week, City Council provided the final approval for the commemorating naming application to name a new park in Stittsville in honour of William Bradley. Mr. Bradley left the Canadian Air Force in 1943 to run his late father’s business, a local Stittsville general store which led him to a career in the Stittsville retail food industry for 46 years. Long time Stittsville residents will remember the Bradley’s Grocery Store. Mr. Bradley was actively involved in his community by way of various volunteer initiatives including the community’s volunteer fire department.
William Bradley Park will be located in the current Porter Place Development currently under construction in the south west end of Stittsville. I am pleased that we will be able to honour this individual in Stittsville.
