Children's Garden wins urban design award
Detail: The Ottawa Children's Garden received a national urban design award. Created by volunteers and children in Old Ottawa East this garden is an exemplary community improvement project.

This organic garden at the corner of Main and Clegg streets in Robert Legget Park started two years ago. Children plant, play and learn about organic food-growing and ecological landscaping.

The garden has a funky design combining good graphics and great spatial design qualities. It features a brightly coloured picket fence painted by the children of Lady Evelyn Alternative school, arched cedar entrance arbour and gates, pathways, vegetable and flower beds and a woodland garden.

The garden also won a special jury award in the City of Ottawa's 2009 Ottawa Urban Design Awards last fall.

Sustainable Living Ottawa East oversees its operation.
