Do you shop at the Farmers Market or 613flea Market at Lansdowne or take part in events in the parkland or have an interest in the management of City-owned land? Read on for more information about potential City plans and tonight’s meeting at 7 pm in the Horticulture Building…
The Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group (the private corporation that runs the retail and sports facilities at Lansdowne Park) has submitted a proposal to the City to take over all of the operations and programming at the publicly (City) controlled portions in Lansdowne Park. This would include the Aberdeen Pavilion, the Horticulture Building, Aberdeen Square and the Great Lawn.
This may affect the future of free community events like 613flea and the Ottawa Farmers Market at Lansdowne Park. Ottawa City Council will vote on this proposal in just 7 business days.
Capital Ward Councillor Shawn Menard issued a Press Release on Friday October 25th that outlines some of the issues. Read it HERE.

Monday October 28, 2019 7pm-9pm
