Our Field House is Open

After much discussion with city staff, the Champlain Park Community Association Board has decided that the field house will be open again for activities.

[Champlain Park's Field House, at 140 Carleton / 149 Cowley, orthogonal side view]

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/).
