Here is a note from Councillor Diane Holmes of Somerset Ward
McNabb Park, located at the corner of Bronson and Gladstone, is an important park serving the Centretown community.
This well used green space is slated for redevelopment this summer and I will be hosting a public meeting to review a preliminary concept plan for McNabb Park.
Some of the proposed components in the plan include a dog park area, new play equipment, mini-soccer field, an outdoor skate-park and a community garden.
Please join us to provide your input on this exciting proposal:
If you have any questions in the interim.
Please do not hesitate to contact the office or the Project Manager, Patrick Legault, at 613-580-2424 ext. 13857

Went to my first Pecha Kucha Ottawa on December 4th.
Since I heard about this event through word of mouth and social media.
So why not check it out and good thing I did go since I know two people there presenting their stuff.
The event took place at Shopify.
Here is a what this event does.
Pecha Kucha is an event for creatives of all kinds to meet, show work and share ideas spontaneously and casually, using a presentation format of 20 slides which are shown for 20 seconds each. Pecha Kucha Night is all about interaction, direct feedback, eye contact and excitement.
Adding that ephemeral, yet essential haptic experience which simply cannot be communicated any other way.
