Maybe you’re a new parent and you’re searching for the parent friendly places that you’re going to find in the city. Maybe you’ve lived here for a while, have passed the terrible twos and you’re just looking for a place to get out of the house. Maybe you need inspiration to add some fun into your life, and you just don’t know where to start in the community around you.

We’ve got you covered. 

We’re a handful of Edmonton Moms (and a couple of Dads). We have been there, done that. We live downtown, we live outside of the city, and we live in the suburbs. We work, we play, and we entertain, everywhere in between. We are sharing our tips, our suggestions and the information that’s going to make raising kids easier, all in one place. Welcome to your go to Edmonton resource for parents – your Edmonton parenting blog that brings you local information first.

We have the Edmonton events that your kids are going to remember, tips to make those outings as smooth as possible and activities that are fun for the entire family. We’ve got resources like an Edmonton Preschool directory, an indoor playground directory, an Edmonton outdoor playground directory, a birthday guide and a list of Edmonton Spray Parks.

If you’re a parent in Edmonton, we’ve got the resources to make life easier. Welcome to Raising Edmonton, stay a while, and get inspired.
