Since COVID-19 began, city parks have become the heartbeat of many neighbourhoods. More than ever, they are sanctuaries of calm and connection away from the stifling routine of home isolation. In this story, we hear from five visitors to Strathcona Park in Ottawa’s Sandy Hill neighborhood and ask: What brought them there? And how does the park help them cope with the pandemic? This is a meditation on Strathcona Park and a message of gratitude for community parks everywhere.
