Westside Regional Recreation Centre

 

The Westside Regional Recreational Centre was developed on a 20 acre site near the City of Calgary and designed to provide complete leisure and recreational opportunities to the residents of the area.

This facilities aquatic component contains all the elements that make modern pools so popular. The centrepiece of the freefrom leisure pool is the large wave pool with computer-controlled wave making equipment capable of producing multiple wave types. With its loops, dips and open flume, swimmers of all ages enjoy the wild ride on the waterslide. The figure eight lazy river and combined vortex and bubble pit allows bathers to play in the currents and to ride the lazy river, the moving water provides leisure enjoyment as well as physical therapy for those who perhaps cannot tolerate the hotter temperatures of the spa pool. A separate shallow tots pool allows the little ones to be part of the action while staying safe and comfortable.
