On February 25, FHACA is organising our first winter carnival since COVID stopped us in our tracks. We are looking forward to see everyone out again on Saturday February 25 between 1 and 4 pm. The horse drawn carriage -always popular with the kids- will be at 31 Sutton Place at Fisher Heights Park between 1-3 pm only, so do not arrive too late.
There is a fire pit with marchmallows, we have crafts, the rinks are open and we’ll serve coffee, hot chocolate and snack. It looks like it is going to be a coldish day, but hey, we are Canadians and don’t we all embrace winter?
Looking forward to see all our young (and not so young) residents again!

The City of Ottawa is looking for your feedback on two concepts for the new play equipment in Gilbey Park.
The existing junior play structure and equipment have surpassed their intended service life. The playground needs upgrading to comply with the City’s accessibility requirements and to respond to the play needs of the neighboring residents.

The wolf is closely related to the coyote and even mixes, resulting in the coywolf
Several years ago we attended a very interesting presentation at City Hall about coyotes. They have gradually travelled north from Mexico and the southern US and are now a common sight in Ottawa too. We learned they have their own territory and that if a coyote dies, another will soon take over the territory. The fight to keep coyotes under control apparently is a losing battle. So we have to be prepared that coyotes are here to stay.
It will be a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious night!

After a two-year hiatus, Fisher Heights & Area Community Association is excited to bring back the 4 th ever Family Movie Night! We will be screening the Disney classic, Mary Poppins. The movie runs for 139 minutes, and some say it is, ‘practically perfect in every way’.
The young, and the young at heart are all welcome. Feel free to bring blankets, sleeping bags or other items for your children to sit on in front of chairs. And what is a movie night without snacks? Popcorn and candy (Welch’s Fruit Gummies) will be provided, along with refreshments (juice and water), and for the adults, decaf coffee and hot chocolate. And as is now tradition, there will be a draw at the end of the show for a gift card.
Entrance is free for everyone
