Owls Club Rental Programming

The concept of the creation of the Austenville Owls Club began in March of 1931 with its first official meeting in 1937 in its new Club House on Lake Banook.  The Club is fully accessible including the installation of  the Fraser Conrad Elevator, fully accessible handicapped access from the parking lot and new accessible washrooms.  The grounds of the Owls Club are fully landscaped along with a wharf and float to compliment the private beach on site.


We have a newly renovated Lakeview Room including an updated kitchen for the use of those renting the premises along with natural gas BBQ's. The Lakeview Room is ideal for Corporate Meetings and includes a complete A/V system available for use.  The members of the club are very proud of the high quality rental facility now available for public, private and corporate use seven days a week.

Contact the Owls Club at 902-401-2810 or EMAIL: info@owlsclub.ca.

Many interesting photographs have been taken of the region around Dartmouth.  Our Public News Blog will be featuring some of these photos.  While credits are not available we owe, as a community, a special thanks to those individuals who over many years took the time to capture our history through these wonderful photos.  Hopefully this trend will continue so in one hundred years others will see what we see today.
