What does Fall mean to us?

With exciting things happening in our facilities, fitness programs, performing arts and recreation programming, there are lots of reasons to Fall into Fun! A full list of activities across the City can be found in our online Recreation eGuide.

Registration is simple, with three easy ways to do it:  You can also browse programs by facility with:

Trick or Swim or Skate for Halloween 

Tickets on sale October 1: 10 for $10. Give the ghosts and goblins at your door a treat they will love! Purchase 10 public swim or skate tickets for only $10! On sale, while supplies last, until October 31 at City of Ottawa swimming pools and select arenas! Tickets are for kids ages 3 to 15 and are valid from November 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017

Public skating season kicks off in October

Just like walking, running or swimming, ice skating offers a great workout while being easy on the joints! Use our convenient search tool  to find locations and times in your area for public and family skates. Children aged 10 and under, as well as beginner skaters of all ages, are required to wear a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approved helmet while attending City of Ottawa indoor public skate sessions.

We also offer skating programs, whether you are looking to learn to skate, or develop your skills such as figure skating, speed skating or power skating. All participants must wear CSA approved hockey helmets.
