Silas Bradley Park
In recognition of Silas Bradley’s extensive community service, the City of Ottawa has been asked to name a future park at 5970 Fernbank Road, Silas Bradley Park.
Silas Bradley, retired dairy farmer, and long-time resident of Stittsville, was deeply involved with his community and served it in many capacities.
Well-known as a strong community leader, Silas took on many leadership roles and is renowned for his work as an elected officer for the Hazeldean Loyal Orange Lodge No. 246., Chairman of the South Carleton School Board, Master of the Hazeldean Masonic Lodge, elected Warden of St. Thomas Anglican Church, Justice of the Peace for Carleton County, and as a charter member of the Stittsville District Lion’s Club.
Silas’ most notable contributions to his community may be his eight years of service as the village’s first Reeve upon its incorporation in 1961 and for his role as the founding father of Bradley’s insurance, which is now a fourth generation business that employs 36 staff.
