Drinking Fountain

I've received word from the city that the drinking fountain in the park is working again. It's been 4 years and boy am I thirsty!!

Unfortunately, the drain has been irreparably clogged with sand so the water will have to run off onto the path/sand until the summer's scheduled, major reno work gets us a brand spanking new fountain.

PLEASE try to prevent further damage to the fountain and keep an eye on the little ones who are magnetically drawn to shove anything they can into it. Speak up so we all can drink up!!

Our new table has arrived

Ping pong season has begun in earnest! Friends of Ritchie Parkette's solicitations have been heard. In fact the case for ping pong tables in city parks has been so well received that we are told 5 other tables have been made for parks around the city. A bone fide coup!

The general opinion is that it plays very well and looks smarter than expected. Hopefully it is respected and remains in good condition for years to come. Please speak up if you see it being mistreated. 

I am told that even Loblaws sells paddles and balls - so now you have no excuse to get your game on. 

In the photo below undefeated neighbourhood champion, Pepi, proudly sits atop his concrete throne of glory beckoning a worthy opponent to attempt a shot at the title. Any takers?
