- Jim Watson, mayor of the city of Ottawa
Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and who passed on the word about our petition. It was heartening to see how many people took the time to sign it and leave comments. Unfortunately on July 11, 2012 the Ottawa City Council voted to terminate it's operations at the Nepean National Equestrian Park.
The City of Ottawa is planning to terminate operations at the Nepean National Equestrian Park by the end of December this year. Their lease is up and they do not want to renew it.
The Equestrian Park is a facility like no other in this area. It is truly an accessible equestrian riding centre. The savings in money for the City is showing as under $350,000.
The NNEP is home to many workers, riders, visitors, amazing volunteers, and the common factor for everyone there is -- the love of horses!
We don't want to lose this beautiful place, in the heart of our City.
We the undersigned, ask the Mayor of the City of Ottawa and city council to vote in favour of continuing the city's lease of the Nepean Equestrian Park and to continue its operation as an accessible riding facility for the people of Ottawa.
