Facility Notice

Due to the ongoing water crisis in Calgary, we are experiencing a higher than usual number of visitors to both our pool and arena facilities. As a result, our schedules may change, and the facilities might be busier than normal.

We kindly ask for your understanding and patience as we offer support our neighbours in Calgary. Please remain respectful to staff and fellow patrons during this time. You cooperation is much appreciated.
