Tomlinson to Host Community Event to Celebrate Opening of Outdoor Skating Rink at Meadowbreeze Park

Tomlinson will unveil its first in a series of sponsored initiatives to give back to the Ottawa community with the grand opening of a new public outdoor skating rink in Meadowbreeze Park, Kanata.

“At Tomlinson, we actively look to find ways to give back to the community of Ottawa and its residents,” said Cindy Tomlinson, Corporate Counsel/Director, Tomlinson. “We are not only active in building the City’s core infrastructure but we also live, work and play in Ottawa. “Our hope is that the rink becomes a hub for people of all ages in our community to lace up their skates, and enjoy winter in the nation’s capital,” she added.

Tomlinson has a long history of philanthropic contributions to local charities and involvement in different projects that enhance the Ottawa community. Meadowbreeze Park Rink launches the first of a series of community park initiatives focused on accessible recreation opportunities. The Tomlinson parks initiative will span five years with a total commitment of $1M to be invested in City of Ottawa parks requiring upgrading or new recreational elements such as skating rinks or basketball courts.
