Grasshopper Baseball Diamond naming proposal

The City of Ottawa Commemorative Naming Committee is conducting public consultations on two separate naming proposals to:
· Name the baseball diamonds at Grasshopper Park (1615 Kilborn Avenue), the “Bill and Marion Atwell Baseball Diamonds”
· Name a new park at 34 Arkose Street “Richardson Heritage Park”

Bill and Marion Atwell Baseball Diamonds (Ward 18 – Alta Vista)
In recognition of Bill and Marion Atwell’s extensive community service, the City of Ottawa has been asked to name the baseball diamonds at Grasshopper Park, located at 1615 Kilborn Avenue, the “Bill and Marion Atwell Baseball Diamonds.”

Bill and Marion Atwell were actively involved with the Alta Vista Little League (now Ottawa South Little League) for several decades, beginning in the 1960s. Their household was always full of little league activity as it was located on Courtice Street, just steps from the ball diamonds and park at 1615 Kilborn Avenue.
