THE ROCKCLIFFE HOSERS
COMMUNITY + RECREATION
MEET THE HOSERS
We're a group of Rockcliffe residents who value spending time with friends and family and enjoying the outdoors. We began as a small crew of volunteers who help scrape, shovel, flood, and supervise the outdoor rinks in our community. Volunteers are teamed up to work together to maintain the rinks throughout the season. Today, the hosers consists of roughly 125 volunteers!
Together with the support of our generous sponsors, our new multi-purpose sports pad and field house in Rockcliffe Park opened on December 16th, 2018. This new community resource encourages active living within our neighbourhood and allows our community to enjoy outdoor recreation and local events all year long. It is truly a facility that Rockcliffe Park can take pride in!

CREATING THE FIELD HOUSE
On December 16, 2018, Rockcliffe Park Field House opened up its doors after almost a decade of dreaming. It took countless hours of preparation, community fundraisers, project management, and partnerships with families, companies and the City of Ottawa. The Rockcliffe Hosers are proud to have contributed such an important community resource to our neighbourhood.
It takes a village.
Here is our story.
