To meet our growing city’s need for convenient access to recreation opportunities and support the important role recreation plays in building complete communities, The City of Calgary is developing new recreation facilities in four under-serviced areas – three in the S.E. in Seton, Quarry Park and Great Plains and one in the N.W. in Rocky Ridge.
Each site is being designed to meet the specific needs of the community with a proposed range of sport, leisure, arts and cultural amenities.
On June 25, 2012 Council approved the proposed amenities and project financing for each new facility and The City is now in the design phase, preparing to proceed into construction.
These four new facilities will provide great spaces to play, learn, grow and connect and are a critical component in developing active, cultural, vibrant and complete communities.

The operator request for proposal documents for Rocky Ridge, Quarry Park and Great Plains have closed. The release of the Seton operator request for proposal is expected spring 2013.
Please regularly check our recreation facility vendor information page for updates on procurement opportunities, details and reference material.

Community advisory groups
Community Advisory Groups, in both the N.W and S.E., are working with The City of Calgary to inform and engage their community on the development of these recreation facilities. Both groups have representatives from area residents, the Calgary Arts Development Authority and Sport Calgary.
If you are a resident in N.W. or the S.E. Calgary, connecting with your community advisory group is good way to get more information on these projects and provide your input.
