The City of Calgary is planning for four new recreation facilities in Calgary's most underserved areas – one in the far Calgary northwest and three in the Calgary southeast. Each site will have amenities designed to meet the specific needs of their area such as recreational, leisure and cultural activities.  Pre-design considerations included facility locations,  neighbourhood context, land use designation, transportation, accessibility, site conditions, legal agreements, architectural guidelines and servicing requirements. These hubs of the community in Calgary will be places where people of all ages and abilities can come together to play, learn, exercise, relax and have fun, while providing a blend of community, cultural, leisure and recreational amenities for individuals, families and competitive sports groups alike

Rocky Ridge Recreation Center
11300 Rocky Ridge Road
Calgary northwest recreation facility with a blend of leisure, cultural and recreational amenities for individuals and families, and competitive sport venues for groups and organizations.  The site also allows for the possible relocation of the Calgary West Soccer Centre. Child care and physiotherapy will be accessible, with physiotherapy having a direct adjacency to the fitness centre. Public transportation and bus routes will be available from Country Hills Boulevard NW and plans for the recreation facility site will enable accommodation of buses within the site. Bus routes will connect to the proposed Tuscany LRT station south of the site at Rocky Ridge Road NW and Crowchild Trail. Estimated completion: 2016/2017

Seton Recreation Center
18150 56 St SE
The Seton recreation facility will be a large Calgary southeast regional recreation centre that will act a community hub in a proposed 8.35 hectare (20.63 acre) located at 18150 56th Street SE, south of Seton Boulevard and east of Deerfoot Trail. It will comprise a blend of leisure and recreational amenities for individuals and families, and competitive sport venues for groups and organizations. Due to its proximity to the South Health Campus, there is opportunity for the facility to provide regenerative and rehabilitative programs. The Seton/Auburn Bay recreation facility will be within walking distance of the future Seton LRT station. Estimated completion: 2017/2018
