We have had an amazing time this year with Walk This Way . Members from all across Ottawa have been walking about our beautiful city to different landmarks. Having started it all off with our annual Easter egg hunt at Rideau Hall, members have crossed the town from the Arboretum, to Parliament Hill . We have also enjoyed visits to conservation areas, museums and even the RCMP musical ride stables. A very big thank you goes out to all of our partners, staff, volunteers and members who come out every week to make this program a success.
