Manderley – Picnic on the Bridge
As part of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau will hold a first of its kind event in Canada – and Manderley will be a big part of it.
Manderley is the official supplier of sod for the Interprovinical Picnic on the Bridge taking place on the Alexandria Bridge, on July 2nd, as part of the Ottawa 2017 celebrations.
The Alexandra Bridge will be open to the public on July 1st for Canada Day celebrations. But once the festivities die down, that’s when things get interesting!
Our trucks loaded with freshly harvested sod will roll into downtown Ottawa.
In the middle of the night, our crew will get to work installing 12,000 square feet, enough to provide a comfortable place to sit for 2,600 picnic-goers on the next day.
Once the picnic is over the sod will be quickly removed and repurposed at various community initiatives throughout the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau.
