Two weeks ago the City installed the plaque commemorating the Kavanagh Green site at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Hazeldean Road. This was the final step to complete this unique gathering space. Back in August, I had the pleasure of joining Mayor Watson, Sharon Kavanagh along with friends and family to officially open the park.
The Kavanagh family has a strong connection to the Stittsville community through many important contributions. For over 24 years the family owned and operated the Stittsville Flea Market, a popular gathering place for many residents across the City and beyond. The dedicated time and efforts to the Food Bank, Holy Spirit Church and the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice.
It has been a pleasure seeing the activity that takes place at what was once a passive green space – residents now taking advantage of the various features to enjoy; including a bocce court, a gazebo, games tables (chess and checkers), a putting green, and a fitness station.
