Sports & Leisure
Ottawa is a natural for sports fans and outdoor recreation enthusiasts:
If cycling turns your crank, Ottawa offers a vast network of recreational pathways plus great mountain biking venues.
If golf is your game, Ottawa offers more golf courses within easy driving distance of downtown than any other Canadian city.
Try whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Ottawa River, some of the continent's finest. Then top it off with some bungee jumping.
In May, Ottawa plays host to a massive gathering of runners from around the world for the Ottawa Marathon, in a truly spectacular celebration of sportsmanship.
The biggest players in the sport join us at Scotiabank Place for action-packed hockey with the Sens.
In winter, Ottawa is like an urban ski resort with hundreds of kilometres of groomed cross country trails and downhill resorts just minutes from downtown.
