Third Ottawa Sens RINK project kicks off Thursday

The Ottawa Senators Foundation is breaking ground Thursday on a third Sens RINK.

The event kicks off at 10:30a.m.

The sports project is in partnership with Ferguslea Properties and the City of Ottawa and part of the revitalization of Bayshore Park.

It will include hockey dasher boards, fencing, hockey nets in the winter and basketball nets in the summer. The Sens RINK will offer skating and hockey clinics for hundreds of youth in Accora Village and the area.

Ferguslea Properties owns Accora Village and is trying to revitalize the area, previously known as Bayshore Village.

A number of City Hall officials, including Mayor Jim Watson will be on hand for the event. Sens Foundation brass will also be there along with Spartacat.

Also participating in the event are elementary school classes from St. Rose of Lima and Bayshore Public School.

The Rink of Dreams at City Hall was the first Sens RINK to open in 2012. The second opened last year in Jules Morin Park.
