Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre

 

The Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre provides an opportunity for swimming, skating and outdoor sports in one of the most progressive recreational facilities in the province of Alberta. The competition pool with its two bulkheads and moveable pool floor allow for endless variations in pool set up and programming. From 50m and 25m competition training to synchronized swimming, multipurpose use, shallow depth lessons and aquacise, lap swimming, and diving… all at once. This flexibility ensures maximum use of a 50m tank.

The large leisure and wave pool and separate tots pool provide unbounded play and therapeutic possibilities. The free form shape of the leisure pool offers out-of-the-way corners for playing and relaxing, while the zero depth beach entry, with its softly lapping waves, affords easy access where the “ocean meets the prairie”. A first for waterslides is the mega-sized rattlesnake themed slide overlooking the pools.
