Construction update

The facility opened to the public on January 14, 2019.

The competition and recreational pool areas are anticipated to open to the public on March 1, 2019 as they require additional work to ensure operational efficiency and safety.

This phased approach allows the facility to begin serving Calgarians with many sorely-needed amenities, including the theatre, art studios, daycare, library, and arenas.

The facility, apart from the areas still under construction, have been turned over to YMCA Calgary for commissioning ahead of the operational opening. Tours are available through YMCA Calgary.
