Discover your city this winter – Winterlude edition

February 10, 2016
Public Service Announcement

 

Ottawa – It’s Winter in the City and there’s a lot to do in and around Ottawa, especially during Winterlude, with events at City partner sites until February 15.

 

Enjoy the season by going for a skate at a City facility or signing up for a course. Join the excitement at a Senators game or at Lansdowne with the Ottawa 67’s. Celebrate the arts at Centrepointe Theatres and Shenkman Arts Centre, or discover the past at a City museum or the Ottawa Archives.

 

Dust off your skates because the Sens Rink of Dreams, Ben Franklin Place Skating Rink and the Lansdowne Skating Court are open, or sled down one of the City’s approved sledding hills when weather and hill conditions permit. Keep checking ottawa.ca for updates. Also, public skating sessions at City facilities are free on weekends until March 27, compliments of RBC Royal Bank.

 

Visit Mooney's Bay Park (Terry Fox Athletic Facility) and enjoy 5 km of groomed and well-lit ski trails. Learn how to cross-country ski or improve your skills with a lesson package that suits you.

 

City Hall is a great place to visit this season with the Karsh-Masson Gallery, Barbara Ann Scott Gallery and the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame.

 

Be sure to check out Winter in the City to keep up-to-date on what’s happening around town.
