The multi-use facility encompasses a new aquatics facility, a large fitness area, indoor children’s play area, multiple programming rooms, family/social area, retail space, and a youth centre. As host to the annual 125km “Death Race” the facility and pools offer excellent opportunity for race participants to warm-up or cool down from this gruelling race.  This sports facility in one of the most progressive recreational facilities in the province of Alberta.

The wave pool has a warmer more “tropical” water temperature than the lap pool. The freeform shape of the 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.

The leisure and therapeutic benefits of moving water soon become evident to those using the wave pool. Whether being massaged by one of the water sprays or playfully splashing a friend, walking upriver in the lazy river or drifting gently down stream, the pool offers something for swimmers of all ages and abilities.
