Waterside Retirement Community Celebrates Grand Opening

The Ottawa Valley's newest retirement destination, Waterside Retirement Community by V!VA Retirement Living, officially opens its doors.

CARLETON PLACE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 13, 2009) - A buzz was certainly in the air as neighbours, local politicians, and eager onlookers gathered around a sparkling new grand fireplace to celebrate the official opening of the Ottawa Valley's newest retirement destination, Waterside Retirement Community.

"Now that the nicer weather is upon us, we really wanted to show everyone in Carleton Place and the Ottawa Valley what a spectacular property we have here at Waterside, and what a great place this is to make the most of your retirement!" exclaimed Sandra McCormick, Waterside's Community Director.

Throughout the afternoon's festivities, guests enjoyed an array of 'V!VAlicious' refreshments prepared by Waterside Culinary Coordinator and Head Chef, Amanda King. "With food this great, I'm ready to retire today!" exclaimed one satisfied forty-something guest. In addition to the appetizing aroma of fresh baked cookies, visitors were also treated to live musical performances by a local violinist and pianist, along with thorough tours of the Waterside's seemingly endless amenities, including the V!VAfit exercise and stretch rooms, and always popular Paddles Pub.

Carleton Place Mayor Paul Dulmage shared his thoughts on the momentous occasion. "On behalf of everyone living in Carleton Place, I'm very happy to officially welcome Waterside Retirement Community to our town," he said. "We are so excited to have this brand new retirement destination in the heart of Carleton Place...it will certainly benefit seniors and everyone else throughout the Ottawa Valley. I'm so impressed with Waterside, I've even told a few friends to move there myself!"

Focused on promoting healthy and active lifestyles, Waterside Retirement Community offers independent living suites ranging in size from studios to two-bedroom. All suites include three meals per day and a complete selection of amenities, such as an on-site spa with an indoor heated saltwater swimming pool, and V!VAplex movie theatre.
