By purchasing a Calgary Recreation Pass or Calgary Recreation Pass Plus (a “pass” or the passes”), I acknowledge and agree that I have read the Terms and Conditions included below and agree to be bound by them.

Recreation Pass Plus

Includes access to Southland and Village Square Leisure Centres. Activities include access to the Water Park, Hot Tubs, Steam Room, Weight Room, Drop-in Dryland and Water Fitness Classes, Open Gymnasium, Rock Climbing and Racquetball/Squash Courts (available at Southland Leisure Centre only), all Aquatic & Fitness Centres and Arenas for Public Skate and Shinny Hockey.

Recreation Pass

Includes access to all Aquatic & Fitness Centres. Activities include access to Public Swim, Lane Swim, Hot Tubs, Steam Room, Weight Room, Drop-in Dryland and Water Fitness Classes and Arenas for Public Skate and Shinny Hockey. Access to the Leisure Centres is available with a top-up fee per admission when your Recreation Pass is presented. The top-up fee is the difference between the Aquatic & Fitness admission and the Leisure Centre admission.

Facility Access / Schedules / Closures**

  1. Use of Calgary Recreation facilities is subject to availability. Facility areas may be unavailable due to maintenance shutdowns (planned and emergency), private rentals, special events, bookings, programs, area maximums, or changes in facility schedules. These changes may occur with little or no notice. No refunds, credits or extensions will be given as result of these situations.
  2. Pass prices do not include access to registered programs, babysitting, private leased areas, etc.
  3. Customers must abide by Aquatic Facility Guidelines​, Youth Weight Room Guidelines, and Arena Rules & Regulations​.

**Each Leisure Centre has a planned maintenance period every year which extends for varying periods of time depending on work to be done. Reduced schedules and activities may occur in some areas while others are closed completely. Aquatic & Fitness Centre facilities may be closed for maintenance from year to year to update critical infrastructure. Customers can use their passes at another facility while sites are closed. These shutdowns are built into the price of the pass and no refund or extensions will be given. Check with staff on upcoming shutdown details to minimize the impact on your enjoyment of the facility.
