Rideau Heights Public School is making great use of the new adjacent Rideau Heights Community Centre and Library.

This new community centre and library are at the heart of the Rideau Heights neighbourhood. The Boys and Girls Club of Kingston and Area, Seniors Association, Loving Spoonful and other service providers have built an exciting schedule of programs and activities.

The new space features

  • Seniors/youth space, lounge areas, a recording studio and a multi-purpose room
  • Gymnasium and community kitchen
  • Customer and administrative services including recreation program registration, facility bookings and sales of Kingston Transit multi-ride cards, blue and grey bins, garbage bag tags and pet licenses
  • Drop-in information about Housing and Social Services programs

Our school is taking advantage of the kitchen, gymnasium and library space. All students have been provided with their own library cards. Students are enjoying visiting the library during and after school.

The building of the Rideau Heights Community Centre and improvements to Shannon Park are part of Phase One of a 20-year plan to revitalize Rideau Heights.
