Accessibility
 
Please note: Calgary Recreation is improving accessibility in facilities whenever upgrades are done. Levels of accessibility vary according to when our facilities were built and when major renovations were completed, so not all parts of the facility may be “accessible for all”. This information indicates the parts of the facility that are barrier-free and is provided to help customer(s) with a disability find a facility that can meet their particular sensory or mobility needs.

​Registered Adapted programs

We offer specialty programming for adults with disabilities including a wide range of fitness and general interest programs.  For more information please call (403) 366-3900.
