The Accora Centre

98 Woodridge Crescent


A community full of life.

Since the founding of the community, we’ve been committed to building the kind of spirit and energy not found in any other neighbourhood. Accora Village regularly hosts resident events like Fun Days, Winterfest, BBQs, Seniors Days, Halloween Parties, Christmas Parties, March Madness Week and pool parties. These special activities give everyone a chance to meet, have fun, and enjoy the many different personalities and amenities in this warm and friendly neighbourhood.

Accora Centre, our own recreation centre, is one of the most popular neighbourhood gathering places. Residents of all ages visit Accora Centre to take part in all sorts of activities – from working out in the gymnasium and weight room, to swimming in the pool, to playing basketball. Residents can also arrange to use the Party Room to hold their own special events and celebrations.

Accora Centre is proud to be the home of the Ottawa Boys and Girls Club, an inspiring and much-loved organization among our young residents.

It’s all just part of life in Accora Village.
