    Excellent tour guide who was knowledgeable and engaged both adults and children in our group. An amazing glimpse into a strange part of Canadian history. Well worth paying for the guided tour if possible.

    We went to Minto for their public swim. The universal change rooms are amazing and the pool is really young family friendly.

    Great place to go with friends for a fun night. Awesome coaching, great vibe, fun activity to try out. It’s not as easy as it seems- takes some practice.

    I just discovered the Superdome at Ben Franklin Place, Hunt Club West and Greenbank. They have a huge indoor turf covered soccer field that is converted into a golf driving range and a walking track in winter (Dec. 3rd to April 12). The golf range is netted off from the walking track, The walking track is 1/10 mile per lap and there is a big clock on the wall. So you can walk at your own pace for a period of time or count your laps. There are chairs to sit on and coat racks for your outer winter gear. No special equipment or shoes needed, just your favorite walking shoes. Big overhead fans keep the air surprisingly fresh and temperature is controlled so you can walk comfortably in just a light sweater, They have a big bright lobby with water fountains and very clean washrooms. Also vending machines for hot and cold drinks and snacks.

    Best part is they only charge $1.00 per session and you can buy a 10 session pass if you don't have a loonie. They are open weekdays. Mon, Wed. Fri. Mornings 9 to 11:30 and Tues and Thursday afternoons 1:30 to 4 PM.

    Lots of friendly, like minded people there. Sure beats slogging through the snow.

    They have overhead music but you might prefer your own ear buds.

    Midget aged boys played 5 games here over the weekend. 4 Pad rink with the all the amenities and plenty of parking. Rinks were very clean, well kept and up to date. Tim's Coffee sold inside but for those wanting choice, theres a Subway, Dairy Queen, McDonalds and a Tim Hortons within a 4 minute drive

    When the RSC first opened, I wasn't a huge fan. The location was lovely, the building had heritage charm (& was updated), but I wasn't overly impressed by the yoga instructors. Things have changed! After the pandemic, I was tired of working out in my basement and wanted a fitness/yoga combo, but I didn't like the power-yoga feel of Goodlife's Yoga classes. All the other local yoga studios were quite pricey, and this was closest to my home too. So I decided to give RSC a proper try. I am now COMPLETELY SOLD on this place, and feel so grateful to have it near me. They have hot yoga flow & Yin & Bikram (the latter feels like their 'power' type class, with constant instructions announced so less time for mind-clearing, but thankfully not their only yoga option). They have effective (& fun) HIIT circuit fitness. And in the summer - aquafit too. And gym included. Honestly the best deal in Ottawa, and great quality REAL yoga classes now, albeit without the marketing of 'come home to yourself' etc. It's real, it's soothing. It's a great place to alternate fitness/yoga days. And it's nestled beside the river, with lovely landscaping, not amidst highrises. Ahhhh....

    Great skating on groomed trails through the woods and orchards, about 30 minutes outside Ottawa. Amazing concept well executed! The owners are friendly and helpful, and we had a great skate yesterday afternoon. I particularly enjoyed skating up and down the small inclines through the woods . Would love to come back under a full moon.

    This is my community swimming pool, not only is this pool kept extra clean, but they offer the following at the pool: lane swim, public swim and swimming courses with Aqua fitness. If someone is looking for one of these this is defiantly the place to go

    Though not very big, this park is an important part of the neighbourhood,. A perfect place to have a coffee, walk your dog, go for a stroll, or sit down and chat with a friend.

    We had a birthday party at Archery Games and it was fantastic! They were so helpful and accommodating and the kids had a blast. A really unique experience for the preteen crew.

    Great time was had by all. Participated...and escaped the Hooked theme room. Looking forward to going back again and trying out a different room.

    Deliverance was a fantastic room. There was enough to keep everyone busy and doing something, and unlike other rooms, this one takes up two levels. I loved the wide range of way to solve puzzles, and the storyline was a great way to keep things tied together. They even threw in a free T-shirt for me because it was my birthday!

    This was a really fun group activity! Everyone really enjoyed it. The downside was that we had a not so great coach. He was actually late to begin with. Throughout the competitions and games they set up for us he was making unnecessary rude commentary. There were a couple conversations that he had with my friends there that were very sour due to his attitude and the way he spoke. During the games he would walk around and not mark down points properly. Just all around not professional. Outside of the coach though this was seriously fun and I’m still glad we decided to throw the party here.
