City Lifts Capacity Limits for its Drop-In Recreation and Cultural Programs

With Provincial regulations easing public health measures, the City of Ottawa is increasing capacity limits for its recreation and cultural drop-in. This will give residents more opportunities to get out for a swim, skate, participate in a sporting activity, exercise in a cardio and weight room, and visit a museum or cultural centre.


Residents should note that capacity for most activities will return to pre-pandemic levels while subject to staff availability. The current reservation system will remain in place to provide clients with the opportunity to secure a spot at a preferred time and to make the check-in process more efficient. Those without a reservation will be admitted when capacity limits allow and will be required to provide their contact tracing information during the onsite registration and screening.


While the capacity limits have been eased, other COVID-19 safety protocols remain in place:

  • Proof of full vaccination and ID (printed or digital) for adults +18.

  • Proof of full vaccination and ID for youth 12 - 17, who are using fitness rooms or participating in drop-in activities.

  • Masks are required at recreational facilities when not taking part in a physical activity.
