As of October, 2014, there are two OREO flying fields in use. Both are located in North Grenville on Boundary Road ( see map below).
Currently the new field is the preferred location because the old field has been 80% reseeded and we do not want to risk damaging the new grass. Please follow the chat group for status updates.
After having turned off 'River Road' (ie RR19) , the “old field” is located approximately two kilometers along Boundary Road on the left. It is a large flat rectangulargrassy field just past a solid wall of tall trees. The new field is located approximately 6km further along on the right. It is located after French Settlement Road, a stop sign, and six houses on the right. It is U shaped and measures almost 140 acres with some trees and a house in the centre.
(The co-ordinates for the “old field” are Lat 45.089, Long -75.598, click on them or see #3 on the map below,
For the “new field” they are Lat 45.05944 , Long -75.578 click on them or see #4 on the map below)
Directions to Boundary Road in North Grenville:
If you like a scenic route, head east on RR8 from the crossroads in Manotick, go over the bridge and continue until you see Tim Horten’s and Drummond's gas station on RR19 or ‘River Road’. Turn right onto “River Road”. It’s a long trek down that road, but very pleasant as you are in sight of the river much of the time. Go past the Hurst Marina and the Swan Inn, and continue for a further 7.5 km when you should see Boundary Road on your left, just as River Road bends sharply to the right. Make a left turn onto Boundary Road.
Another good way to get to the field is to go south on the ‘416’, and take the Roger Stevens exit. Turn left and head in an approximately easterly direction towards Kars. Cross the Rideau River with the Swan Inn and Hurst Marina on your left, and take a right on RR19 or “River Road”. Continue for roughly 7.5km until you see Boundary Road on your left, just as River Road bends sharply to the right. As a guide it takes about 25-30 minutes to get to the field from Barrhaven
