Honouring David Arntfield

In recognition of extensive community service to the citizens of Ottawa, the City has been asked to name the recreation area within Centennial Park, located at 5572 Doctor Leach Drive, the ?David Arntfield Recreation Area?.

A proud resident of the Manotick community, David was a dedicated community volunteer. As the Competitive Convenor for the Osgoode-Rideau Minor Hockey Association, he was responsible for obtaining team sponsorships and leading annual fundraising efforts.

As a member of the Executive Committee responsible for the Ottawa Ride For Dad Prostate Cancer Awareness campaigns from 2009-2019, more than $4 million was raised for local research and awareness initiatives. His commitment to community causes was always evident, volunteering for many fundraising and recreational sponsorship activities. David was known as a ?master fundraiser? and assisted greatly in acquiring $890,000 in Federal Infrastructure Funding that supported the expansion of the Manotick Arena in 2017.
