Deep River Waives Recreation Non-Resident Fees for Laurentian Hills Rate Payers
At June's 2004 Council meeting, the Council of Laurentian Hills agreed to the terms of an agreement that would see the non-resident fees in Deep River for recreation programs waived. Laurentian Hills rate payers can now enjoy the swim programs at the community pool and hockey and figure skating programs at the rink without the extra cost. The Council's of both Town's are working hard to develop more inter-municipal relations to benefit the residents of both Towns.
Along with a multitude of local clubs, Laurentian Hills maintains a wide variety of recreational facilities throughout the municipality. With two outdoor rinks offering both summer and winter sports, soccer fields, a number of ball fields and basketball courts, we have lots of room for sports enthusiasts. We have playgrounds for kids offering a safe place to play and parks like Tenna-Brise showcasing a bit of our history. Of course being situated along the Ottawa River, we also have some of the best beaches in the Ottawa Valley. Also, don't forget we border on Algonquin Park for some of the best natural recreation in the world.
Located in Chalk River, Anne Crosson Park provides children with a safe, fenced play yard with various climbing equipment.
Always a popular spot in the summer, the Chalk River Ball Park has been revamped thanks to community volunteers.
Tenna-Brise Park located in the heart of Chalk River is the home of the Hudson Stone.
The outdoor rink and playground in Point Alexander offer year round activities.
A hidden jewel in Laurentian Hills is the beach located at Tee Lake in Rolphton.
