Pembroke’s popular tobogganing hill closed due to steel fencing concerns

Jan 19, 2022

BR Wed., Jan. 19, 2022timer3 min. read Pembroke – One of Pembroke’s most iconic and popular toboganning hills has been closed due to safety concerns regarding the buildup of ice along the hill and the steel fence at the bottom of the hill. A notice from Carefor was sent out on January 9 stating the sliding hill at the Carefor Mackay Centre (formerly the Grey Sisters Motherhouse), had to be closed due to safety concerns. The notice did not gain a lot of attention until the onslaught of this year’s first major winter storm, but now people are starting to take notice. The hill, known by locals as the “Mother Hill” is located at 700 Mackay Street. It quickly became known as Mother Hill following the purchase and building of the Grey Sisters of the Immaculate Conception Motherhouse in 1952. The Grey Sisters owned and operated the property until Carefor took ownership in 2017. One of the early concerns throughout the community was the new owners might put an end to the longstanding tradition set by the Sisters of allowing the property to be used for tobogganing. However, Carefor carried on the tradition, and the sight of children and parents enjoying sledding and tobogganing at this location continued on uninterrupted. The recent closure is believed to be the first time residents and visitors could not access the unsupervised site. Sharon Maye, Director of Operations and Programs at Carefor Health and Community Services, issued a brief statement on the company’s Facebook site notifying the community of the temporary closure. “Carefor is actively working on repairing the fence,” Mrs. Maye said. “There will be an update posted in the next couple of days. Thank you for your understanding.” Although the hill is located on private property, both the Grey Sisters, and most recently, Carefor Mackay Centre, allowed the hill to be used for tobogganing and other winter activities without interference. It has been an unwritten rule the hill stayed open and thousands of children and their parents used the steep hill, which begins at Mackay Street and descends about 400 feet to River Road where steel fencing provides a barrier. The steel fence is approximately eight feet high and follows the entire property along River Road. On a typical sunny winter day, it is not uncommon to see the hill filled with children, sometimes numbering close to 100. Mrs. Maye said it is Carefor’s desire and goal to repair the fence before the winter season ends. “We had some concerns not only about the condition of the fence, but with such little snow so far this season the hill itself was extremely slick with the snow packed down solid, creating large sections of ice. Both children and adults were sliding very fast and at that speed it is dangerous when they get to the bottom by the fence,” she said. “For now we have placed several bales of hay in front of the most damaged parts of the fence. That is only one measure we have put in place and there are other areas of concern we need to address. We are hopeful we can complete the repairs so it is safe to open up the hill again this season.” Mrs. Maye stressed that from the time Carefor took over the Mackay Centre, they wanted to continue the tradition of keeping the hill open for the community. “All of us here know just how important the tobogganing hill is to the community, especially when the children are not in school and they are looking for an outdoor activity,” she said. “It is our intent to complete the repairs so that not only is the hill opened up again, but it is re-opened so that is safe for everyone.” On December 27, an 11-year-old Ottawa girl lost her life in a sledding mishap at Mooney’s Bay. Josee Abi Assal had just moved to Ottawa with her parents and two siblings six months earlier and was sledding for the first time in her life when the toboggan she was on with her cousin and older brother hit a trio of steel posts. She later died in hospital. SHARE:
