Forest Park traditionally has been a meeting place in Ottawa. The park — with its shade trees, swimming pool, playground equipment and other amenities — has been a big draw.
Forest Park will be a busy place on Saturday with Frisbee Fest taking over the area. Activities include two disc golf tournaments played on the new disc golf course, free swimming with a donation to Hope House and the annual Play Day, sponsored by the Ottawa Play Task Force. Along with the festival, there will be live music and vendors.
The disc golf tournament is sponsored by the Ottawa Recreation Commission and Ottawa Bike and Trail. All the activities begin at 9 a.m.
Play Day will consist of games for children along with refreshments and getting sprayed with water by the Ottawa Fire Department.
