To encourage a spirit of community through social, sporting, cultural and recreational activities    

West Rouge Sports & Recreation Association

President’s Message

Started in February of 1960 West Rouge Sports and Recreation was created to develop a sense of Community in our area. We are the "fun" people that support athletic, social and cultural events. Run entirely by volunteers that live in the neighbourhood, we aim to make West Rouge the best neighbourhood in the City.

These are some of the events that we run each year:

  • January - May and October to November - Free Family Movie Nights. These are usually held at 6 pm. Popcorn is free. We encourage kids to come in their Pjs if they like and bring blankets to curl up on the floor to enjoy. From time to time we offer special dress up or sing along events. People of all ages are welcome.
  • February - Yuk Yuks Comedy Night - a dinner and show event. Tickets must be purchased in advance. This is our major fund raiser for the year.
  • March or April - look for our annual Children's Easter Egg Hunt. Spend some time with us and your little ones 8 and under. Take photos with the Easter Bunny, make a special Easter craft, play some games, get faces painted and enjoy some Easter treats. This is a free event for members of the community and their families.
  • April - Earth Day Clean Up - This annual neighbourhood clean up is held towards the end of the April each year on a Saturday morning. Join us to pick up garbarge, build outdoor craft projects for the kids and a free lunch for all those who participate. This event is held jointly with CCRA at the Port Union Community Center.
  • June- Usually we hold our annual Parking Lot Sale (the neighbourhood garage sale) the first Saturday in June. Rent a couple of spots in the lot, one for your car and one for your treasures and help find them a good home.
  • July - We join together with CCRA to provide free Sunday Concerts in the Park (behind the Port Union Community Center). These are the first 3 Sundays after the long weekend. Come out at 7 and you can bring a picnic and chairs if you want to enjoy the evening.
  • September - The Saturday after Labour Day, join us for Community Day. This event will involve a BBQ, games for the kids and those of us that are young at heart. Come out and enjoy an old fashioned community picnic afternoon and evening.
  • October - The annual Children's Halloween Party. Dress up the little ones ages 0 to 7 and join us for games and candy. This is a free event for residents and their families.
  • November - Our annual Artisan's sale has traditionally been held. This gives local artisans and crafters a chance to sell their wares and you a chance to purchase unique Christmas gifts.
  • December - Join us on a Saturday morning for Breakfast with Santa. A pancake breakfast, a photo with the Jolly old elf, crafts and family fun.

As you can see we are a very active group. If you would like to join us or offer some help with one or more of our events, please feel free to email me or give me a call.
