The City of Calgary (The City) owns and operates over 50 recreation facilities across Calgary. Another 190 City-owned facilities are operated by third-party partners. These facilities range in size from large multi-amenity recreation centres like Southland Leisure Centre to smaller specialized facilities like Glenmore Sailing School (see map).

GamePLAN for Facilities will provide updated planning guidelines and an investment strategy for where, when, and how The City should invest in publicly-funded recreation facilities.


This phase of public engagement focuses on these key areas:

  • How Calgarians use recreation facilities
  • What improvements should be made to recreation facilities
  • How The City should plan for new and improved facilities

We are also working with groups and agencies to learn about their experiences with publicly-funded recreation facilities.



Below you will find a series of questions to understand your experience with City and Partner operated recreation facilities. There are five sections:

  1. How you use recreation facilities
  2. Why you visit recreation facilities
  3. How satisfied you are with these facilities
  4. Your recreation values and priorities
  5. About you

Public feedback from the survey will contribute to recommendations for future recreation facility investment, design and location. Thank you for taking the time to provide your perspective!
