Ottawa's Premier
Soccer Facility

Located in Carlsbad Springs, ON

About JDG Park

Julian de Guzman (JDG) Park joined Ottawa’s soccer landscape in 2022. With a strong local connection and a story that can inspire any athlete, Canadian soccer legend, Julian de Guzman, made the perfect namesake for the facility. The 6 acre outdoor soccer facility consists of two state-of-the-art soccer pitches: an artificial turf stadium field with lights and a new natural grass field.

JDG Park is located East of Ottawa, Ontario in Carlsbad Springs on the Maple Leaf Almrausch Club (MLAC) grounds. The MLAC, Ottawa’s only German Club, has been a pillar in the community where people can gather since it was founded in 1964, making it the perfect historic spot for the facility.

Professional Grade Turf

JDG Park boasts the top turf system on the market, FieldTurf’s leading Vortex CORE system. It is designed to embody the key characteristics of a pristine natural surface and deliver the perfect balance of performance and beauty.

Modern Facility & Clubhouse

From the new lighting and fencing to the FIFA approved artificial turf and natural grass fields, this state-of-the-art soccer facility provides an authentic experience that is second to none for players at all levels in the Ottawa region.

Exclusively For Soccer

As soccer purists, our fields are only used to play this great sport. As such, the decision was made not to add football lines to the pitches in order to further enhance the soccer playing experience at JDG Park.

Home to Ottawa’s Leading Teams

JDG Park has also partnered with several local teams and the Ottawa Carleton Soccer League (OCSL) to host many of their member clubs. The two time Men’s National Championship team, Gloucester Celtic, also uses JDG Park as their home field and practice facility.

In addition to local, provincial and OPDL matches, the facility has hosted Atlético Ottawa, Valour FC, FC Edmonton, Vancouver FC, Halifax Wanderers, Pacific FC and Forge FC from the Canadian Premier League (CPL) for training sessions. We have also had several other notable professional players currently playing in Europe train at our facility during their off season, such as Ottawa’s very own, Jonathan David.

Great soccer facility with a rich history in the city. Convenient to drive to from anywhere in the city as it’s just off the 417 highway. Was one of my favourite pitches to play on as a youth and now it’s absolutely my favourite as an adult. The pitch is immaculate and the atmosphere in the clubhouse just tops it off!

Roland Tiamuh

Fantastic pitch. Top notch artificial surface for game play with the added bonus of the MLA German club’s thirst quenching post game retreat. I could swear it makes me a better player!

Michael Swinburne

Great to see one of the historical soccer venues being restored and taken above and beyond top standards. Will be the envy of Ottawa once the renovations are completed, new field is a brilliant start, and the German club continues to be a great spot for post game.

Dan Deganutti

Amazing soccer park , new technology turf gives you closest feeling that you are playing on the pro natural grass surface . You also have an option to enjoy some goulash after the game in the adjacent German club !!

Stan Jasic

Best football (soccer) facility in the city. Unbelievable playing facility, bar, and restaurant. This place is going to be the future of Ottawa soccer.
