Gatineau Park Parkways are Now Closed -- Thanks

posted Oct 30, 2012, 5:38 PM by NCD HPC-Rep
Now that the parkways of Gatineau Park are closed for the winter, I want to thank those of you who dug yourselves out of bed before sunrise on weekend mornings, or hustled through rush-hour traffic on weekday evenings to close parkways so that many, many could enjoy what must be the luckiest privilege in Canada for those of us who like to roll over pavement on skis, skates, cycles or longboards.

Though this task of co-ordinator has its challenges, recruiting people to close certainly was not one of them.  Thank you to all the volunteers from: Chelsea Nordiq, Nakkertok, Skinouk, XC Ottawa, Carleton U. Ravens nordic ski team, Ottawa Inline Skating Club, and parents from the youth program of the Ottawa Bicycle Club.

As always, thank you especially for keeping safety, mutual respect and consideration for the natural environment at the forefront.

Enjoy those wide-open parkways and, hopefully soon, the park's snow-covered trails.

See you out there,
