Our dedicated 55+ Older Adult Activity centre is located in the Courtice Community Complex. We also offer programs and drop-in activities at Diane Hamre Recreation Complex, Bowmanville Indoor Soccer, Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex, and Alan Strike Aquatic and Squash Centre.

There is no membership fee. Just pay for the activities that interest you.

What's new

  • As we continue to support social and physical distancing, the Municipality of Clarington is cancelling all spring recreation programming. Residents will receive a full refund for all spring program and permit payments without any administrative fees added. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
