All activities in the Champlain Park Fieldhouse have been cancelled as of March 16, 2020 and until further notice (at least until 2022?), due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The CPCA has decided that we will not open the fieldhouse for any activities (rentals or CPCA use) this season.
This is because the Champlain Park Fieldhouse is an unstaffed, volunteer-run facility. The Covid-19 procedures and requirements outlined by the City would be difficult for our volunteers to undertake and to monitor. These include general hygiene practices to be followed by participants of indoor activities (hand hygiene, masks, physical distancing) plus Covid-19 cleaning, charting and monitoring responsibilities.
You may wish to rent Champlain Park to hold an outdoors not-for-profit private or community event (Hours: 7am to 11pm). Picnics, fundraisers, sporting events, birthday parties, weddings, and special events may be booked by applying to the City of Ottawa for a rental permit. Champlain Park Community Association will be given preference for a date over a private function if they have applied for a permit well in advance. Go to the PARK RENTAL PERMITS link on the website to apply.
You will advised once the fieldhouse facilities are back in operation and the activities resume.
Inside Champlain Park, the main entrance is located on Cowley Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The Champlain Park Fieldhouse is owned by the City of Ottawa but scheduling the daily use of the facility has been delegated to the community association and its volunteers.
It consists of one large open room, a full kitchen and washrooms. It is suitable for events like birthday parties, meetings and recreational programs such as aerobics.
Neighbourhood residents are able to book use of the fieldhouse, however, many evenings or morning time slots are already taken with regular classes, such as yoga. The association has done its best to keep Saturday and Sunday afternoons free for community use, such as children’s birthday parties.
Regular programs generally run from September to June.
Evenings from Monday to Friday are usually booked though some Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights are sometimes available.
The rental fee is $15 an hour, plus a current association membership. Those using the Fieldhouse are required to sign a contract, as required by the city. There is no alcohol permitted.
