Rideau Carleton Casino Trips

The Nepean Seniors Recreation Centre and the Rideau Carleton Casino arranges trips by bus to Rideau Carleton Casino. The bus leaves the Seniors Centre at 4:00 p.m. and returns around 9:00 p.m. The cost is $9.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members.

The price provides a $5.00 token voucher. The Casino outing happens in March, June and October. Come join us for an evening of fun, friends and perhaps even a little winning at the slots!
