Never run out of things to do

The Minto Recreation Complex is Ottawa's newest state-of-the-art recreation facility. This magnificent centre is a vital community resource. Beautifully designed and built to the highest standards of environmental sustainability, Minto is tremendously proud to be associated with this recreation centre — which has become a hub of activity for Barrhaven, and will be for future Harmony residents.

The 160,000 square foot facility is also home to many community events and drop-in programs such as aquafit, indoor cycling, group fitness classes, public skating sessions, and sports games. If you're planning on hosting a big party or event you can rent out the halls, meeting rooms, or even the skating rinks.
