Laroche park will not be getting it's contaminated soil remediated as planned.

Mechanicsville Community Association is extremely disappointed to learn from Councillor Leiper that there are currently no funds allocated for the contaminated soil remediation of Laroche Park, as planned. The MCA will continue to push the City of Ottawa to consider a smaller clean up to accommodate the new Field House and the Sens Multipurpose Rink. Our community will continue with the design/consultation process so we have completed plans for Laroche Park that meet all our needs. MCA will continue to fight for this project as Laroche Park is important to this community and we need your continued support.
