Things to do!

Life in the Ottawa Valley truly does provide something for everyone. Whether you are a nature lover, sports enthusiast, or history buff, you're sure to find something to tickle your fancy among our impressive line up of activities and venues.


Everything For The Sports Enthusiast

Pembroke is known as Hockey Town Canada and Petawawa is just as much Hockey Town as Pembroke is. With three local names in the Hockey Hall of Fame, you know where our loyalties lie. Right here at home, we have Junior A Lumber Kings’ action every Sunday night from September through March. There’s also the International Silver Stick Tournament in Pembroke every November and December — the largest tourney of its kind in North America. 

And the NHL is just over an hour down the road, at the Canadian Tire Centre, where you’ll find the Ottawa Senators taking on the world. 

In summer, our attention turns to golf. There are many fine courses in the region, and you’ll want to try them all out before you decide where to buy your membership. Soccer is another hotbed of local activity. 

With the facilities of Base Petawawa at our disposal, our sports and recreational options are second to none. 

Top-notch golf courses are close to every community.
