Ward 1 official websiteRocky Ridge Recreation Facility

YMCA Calgary is the facility operator for Rocky Ridge Recreation. Over the next year, The City and YMCA Calgary will work together to develop the program and service model.  Prior to opening, the YMCA will ensure that key stakeholders are consulted and processes for ongoing collaboration and engagement are established. In the fall of 2016, YMCA will provide presentations in the community for anyone who is interested.

Ward 1 Q&A with YMCA

Q: When will YMCA put programming into place at the Rocky Ridge Facility?
A: The City has informed the YMCA that the facility will be ready to open in the third quarter of 2017. The YMCA will start offering programs once they are open.  No firm date will be given until the YMCA receives possession. Typically, it is a month after the possession date that the YMCA would open.

Q: When will hiring happen?
A: Hiring is estimated to begin 10 months after the YMCA hires a general manager.  All the jobs will be posted on the YMCA Calgary website.

Q: What is the current progress of the new YMCA in Rocky Ridge?
A: The recreation centre and YMCA is on schedule and will be open in the third quarter of 2017.

Q: Will the new YMCA in Rocky Ridge have any effect on Crowfoot YMCA?
A: There may be some impact on the Crowfoot YMCA. However, YMCA believes the population in the NW can support both facilities. In fact, the Rocky Ridge facility will help alleviate the crowd problem at Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot.
