A group of Syrian refugee children in Ottawa helped clean a park near their home this weekend as a way to say thanks to the community that welcomed them a year ago.

About 30 people gathered Sunday morning at Ogilvie North Park with gloves and garbage bags to pick up litter left around the grounds. The green space is located near two highrises at 1240 and 1244 Donald St. where approximately 400 Syrian refugees live.
