Here’s part of an interesting article that appeared recently in OttawaStart Community News (which recently surpassed 16,000 articles):
Do you have a favourite public space, neighbourhood or street in Ottawa you would like others to know about? The Canadian Institute of Planners’ (CIP) Annual Great Places in Canada competition is looking for online votes and nominations. With so many great places in Ottawa, it will be hard to narrow down your choice.
Maybe it’s a spot by the Rideau Canal, the colourful Chinatown Gateway on Somerset Street, swimming at Westboro beach or watching the sailboats at Britannia Park? It could be the hustle and bustle of the ByWard Market, savouring the goods at the Lansdowne Farmers’ Market or enjoying the serenity of the Manotick Mill. Or maybe it is just down the street in your very own neighbourhood.
