The Rocky Ridge Recreation Centre, located at 11300 Rocky Ridge Road NW, opened early 2018 and it is operated by the YMCA. New software called the Build Information Model was used to ensure everything was placed in exactly the right location. Through the use of this cutting edge technology, contractors were able to place roof beams up to 125 feet long perfectly into place.

Described as a "building within a park", the centre features views of the mountains and faces a wetland. The 285,000 sq. ft. facility will sit in the middle of a natural park. The building, including its curving roof structure and its naturally ageing exterior, was designed to complement the surrounding rolling prairie landscape.

Teams, individuals and families of all ages and abilities now come together to enjoy this unique outdoor and indoor recreation experience. The list of indoor and outdoor amenities includes:

  • 25m, 8 lane competition pool
  • Spectator viewing area
  • Leisure pool with a wave system and water slides
  • Hot tubs and steam room
  • 1 multi-purpose ice rink
  • 1 leisure ice rink
