After much discussion with city staff, the Champlain Park Community Association Board has decided that the field house will be open again for activities.
Other City of Ottawa recreation facilities are open and since a number of Covid-19 requirements have been dropped, that made it difficult for us to operate as a volunteer-run facility, the time is right to open things up after being closed for 2.5 years.
This means regular clubs that met pre-COVID as well as those booking for a one-time event (birthday party, baby shower, etc) can now proceed. (If you need to make a booking see the field house request form https://champlainpark.org/park/fieldhouse/).
We strongly recommend all those booking events to ask participants to wear masks while in the field house for everyone’s safety – as the Omicron variants are highly contagious.
We reserve the right to close the field house if we experience a huge jump in cases in Ottawa this fall. We will take direction from the relevant authorities at the municipal and provincial levels and Ottawa Public Health on this matter.
