Wesley Clover Parks has a vision to develop partnerships with the local farming and agricultural communities. At this time we grow and harvest over 100-acres of hay to feed the over 60 horses and one donkey that call Wesley Clover Parks home. This is part of our long-term commitment to sustainable farming.
We are constantly working on new and innovative plans to help Wesley Clover Parks keep pace as a thriving and evolving community hub with a focus on sustainable farming.
As a part of the celebrations for Canada 150, the country’s sesquicentennial, the City of Ottawa organized the Canada 150 Groves project. The project was meant to leave a lasting legacy by planting a grove of 150 native Canadian maple trees in each of the 23 city wards. Wesley Clover Parks, located in Councillor Mark Taylor’s Bay ward, was selected as the recipient for our ward. Planting for all groves took place throughout 2017. This planting was in addition to the 1000+ Canada 150 tulips, also known as the Maple Leaf tulip, that were planted on-site!
