The Kanata North and West Carleton – March communities have expanded greatly in the past thirty years from primarily rural living and the early Beaverbrook development to include today’s communities of Kanata Lakes, Morgan’s Grant and several new proposed developments.

Our community’s growth has created the need for a new Recreation Centre with amenities to include an indoor pool, gyms, fitness rooms, outdoor sports fields and other recreational facilities  to serve the surrounding areas.

In 2009, the City of Ottawa approved to move to the design stage and awarded the contract to an architect for a proposed design approval. At present, the facility is being designed to qualify for LEEDS Gold certification for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.

This Steering Committee is the community’s voice for this process and your place to help us build the best possible recreation centre.  But we need your help and that of corporate sponsors to ensure the best recreation facility possible.

Presently proposed to include:

  • a 6-8 Lane Pool
  • Whirlpool
  • Sports Fields
  • Exercise Room
  • Community Rooms
  • Activity Rooms
  • Two Gyms
  • Skateboard Park
  • Winter Cross Country Ski Trails
