There is a new sports center on University Avenue; a double-pad indoor rink, and outdoor sports field used for several types of field sports. The Rotary Place Sports Center is always a busy place, and it doesn't matter what time of year it is - there is almost always something going on. It's location is fairly open, with lots of field space and grassy areas, and a good parking facility.

Orillia has produced many noted sports figures, including rowers, figure skaters, hockey and lacrosse notables. Many of the parks (see the parks pages) have outdoor soccer fields, and baseball diamonds. Tudhope Park is the home of the Orillia Curling Club. The YMCA building on Peter Street has an indoor pool, and gym and track for enthusiasts to maintain their training through winter months. And just outside of town is the Rama rink ... the Rama Mask. (Also outside of town was the old Orr-Walton Hockey Camp.)
During winter months, several of the parks have outdoor skating rinks as well. Nearby, there are places for cross-country skiing, snowboarding, downhill skiing, bmx and dirt bike trails, and then there is the Channel Cats swim team, and very popular Rowing Club.

Several things have disappeared over the last few years. Orillia used to have a pretty busy 5-pin bowling alley on Memorial Avenue. That was bought out a few years ago, and then suddenly closed down. We no longer have a bowling alley, so I suppose the bowlers have had to go to Barrie to participate. And the most, and longest used rink was dismantled ... The Orillia Community Center. It used to be the home of the Orillia Terriers Jr. B. Hockey.
