Foothills Fieldhouse

The City has plans for a multisport fieldhouse to be built at Foothills Athletic Park, near McMahon Stadium.​​

The multisport fieldhouse at Foothills Athletic Park has been identified as a priority for Calgary and represents a keystone facility for The City. It aligns with The City’s Recreation Master Plan to address an existing gap for indoor practice and play space. The fieldhouse also responds to the need for competition capable facilities.

The proposed components of the multisport fieldhouse include:

  • One 400-metre, 8-lane indoor track
  • Jumping and throwing areas
  • One rectangular field located inside the track that can accommodate multiple activities, including field sports, batting cages, baseball training, tennis or golf hitting cages
  • Eight basketball courts convertible into 12 volleyball courts or 16 badminton courts
  • Capacity for 10,000 spectators - 1,500 permanent and 8,500 temporary spectator seats in the space of the gymnasium courts
  • Storage rooms and washrooms
  • Fitness and weight training facilities
  • Multi-purpose rooms
  • Administration and operational support space
  • Change rooms and associated amenities
  • Outdoor playground
  • Parking

The cost of the multisport fieldhouse is estimated at $285.8 M over a five-year period, including inflation. The timeline to complete the project is estimated at five years from the time funding becomes available.

Current status

This project has been identified by Council as one of the top four priority capital projects for The Corporation. The project’s timing, operational model and funding source are currently under consideration.
