The Overbrook Community Association celebrated the official grand opening of the SENS RINK on February 15. The SENS RINK provides local kids with access to recreational programs and activities, both in the winter and summer months. The state-of-the-art outdoor rink promotes physical activity, recreation and social development, along with getting youth more active and engaged.
Since greater youth engagement is a key goal of our organization and other community partners, the Association is grateful that the Sens Foundation undertook fundraising efforts. The rink was built with sponsorship from the Trinity Development Foundation, which provides philanthropic support for community causes throughout Ottawa.
The Association views the rink as vital to providing at-risk youth with additional recreation opportunities, especially during critical hours.
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, Rideau-Rockcliffe Ward 13 Councillor Tobi Nussbaum, Alta Vista Ward 18 Councillor Jean Cloutier, and Cyril Leeder, President of the Ottawa Senators, were at the opening.
