Fallingbrook Community Association

Crime Prevention Ottawa, in partnership with the City of Ottawa, made a call to communities for mural projects that support youth empowerment, graffiti prevention, community safety and the beautification of Ottawa neighbourhoods. Fallingbrook Community Elementary School was thrilled to have been successful in our application.   
In partnership with Global Child Care Services and Art Studio Plus, we have engaged our student body and the community to create an outdoor mural facing our primary yard. Our project has included the delivery of educational workshops to foster learning and enhance civic pride to help curb recurrences of graffiti and other types of vandalism to which the school grounds and neighbouring service parkland continue to face.

It has a population of over 25,000 people, 8 elementary schools, 2 high schools, a public library and Ray Friel Centre recreation complex. Fallingbrook was farmland until 1985 when development started.  Fallingbrook is bordered by St Joseph Blvd, Tenth Line Road, Innes Road and Trim Road.

The Fallingbrook Community Association tries to represent the  residents and over the years has hosted events such as Canada Day, Summerfest, an annual community garage sale, a Neighbourhood Watch program and other events that benefit the community.
