Mayor Jim Watson congratulates Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine

Mayor Jim Watson congratulates Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine on celebrating three years of serving Ottawa parents and families.

On behalf of Members of Ottawa City Council, it is my distinct pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to all the readers of the summer edition of Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine.

I am delighted to congratulate Kelly Roesler, Editor, and the staff of Ottawa Parenting Times in recognition of the Magazine’s 3rd anniversary serving parents, families and caregivers across our city, as well as for the publication’s phenomenal growth in three short years.

Ottawa families can look forward to a diversity of fun‐filled child‐ and youth‐friendly activities that the City of Ottawa offers at our numerous indoor and outdoor pools, splash pad parks, wave pools and day camps. New this summer, family members of all ages can savour the exciting variety of tantalizing menus and refreshments available at the new truck and cartfood vendors located around the city.

Summer in the city also means that families can explore wonderful festivals like the Ottawa International Children’s Festival,ItalianWeek, Summer Solstice Aboriginal Arts Festival, Festival de la St‐Jean à Ottawa, Kingdom of Osgoode Medieval Festival, the Navan Fair and Ottawa Greekfest.

Allow me to convey my best wishes to Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine for its continued success and to Ottawa parents, families and caregivers for a most enjoyable summer.

Jim Watson
City of Ottawa
