This is arguably one of the best cities to raise a family! The age old quote "it takes a village to raise a child" is something we're often reminded of, and being a part of a community that hosts amazing public events is something we are sure grateful for. Not only is it a great way to spend quality time with your family, but it is also a perfect way to meet fellow families, neighbours, or catch up with friends.
With countless free community events, kid-friendly festivals, and more seasonal activities it doesn’t matter if it is a scorching summer day, or a drizzly December afternoon. Your family will always have something to do and new people to meet.
