Don’t miss out on the fun this winter. Register now for a City of Ottawa recreation program offered at our many locations throughout the city. The online Recreation eGuide and Mon guide francophone des loisirs offer a variety of instructional and recreational opportunities for all ages and abilities.
Stretch your muscles and strengthen your core in the fitness studio, weight room or pool. Dance away your winter blues while moving to the rhythm and jazzy beats; get messy creating masterpieces; take up the piano, guitar or a martial art; or boost your team spirit playing volleyball, basketball or curling.
New program opportunities are also available this winter at the recently opened Minto Recreation Complex-Barrhaven including an indoor walking track, 25 metre lap pool, two NHL-size rinks and a full-size gymnasium.
Skating is a winter favourite and the City offers a number of learn-to-skate programs.
You can also enjoy public skating at a City arena, or join your neighbours at the community outdoor rink . A trip to the Sens Rink of Dreams at City Hall or the new Skating Court at Lansdowne Park makes a perfect family outing along with a Beavertail and hot chocolate. A CSA-approved helmet is highly recommended during all skating sessions.
Please note that a client barcode and family PIN numbers are required to register for recreation programs. Visit ottawa.ca for more information.
