Large urns are available for coffee and hot water or tea, as well as a small coffee maker and tea kettle for small groups. Coffee, tea, and condiments are not supplied – renters must bring their own.

Bar Facilities: Alcohol is not permitted on the premises unless the renter requests bar service from the Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club or obtains their own Special Occasion Permit from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. The Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club has a full bar located next to the entrance to the Kitchen and will provide bartenders at no charge to those wishing bar service. All profits from the bar service go to Community Service projects. The bar is not available to renters wishing to obtain their own Special Occasion Permit. (Note that when alcohol is present, the rental rate per hour is the same whether the KHLC provides bar service or the renter uses an SOP.)

Parking: There are 60 – 70 parking spots available on site. Parking is shared among folks renting the Hall and folks using the soccer fields or hockey rinks. In the summer, the parking area will be partially used during soccer practices or games. In the winter, a rink is constructed on the south parking lot eliminating close to 40 spaces.
