PROJECT UPDATE - September 2023

The What We Heard Report provides a summary of feedback received in Phase 1 of engagement. The feedback is being used to inform the development of GamePLAN for Facilities draft recommendations.

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

Phase 2 engagement, which will seek feedback on the draft recommendations, will occur in early 2024. Subscribe to our email list to receive project updates and notification of the next engagement opportunity.


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.


PHASE 1 ENGAGEMENT - Closed December 1, 2022

Our Phase 1 public engagement survey was open for the month of November. The survey is now closed. Our Phase 1 What We Heard Report can be viewed here. Please join our mailing list (top right-hand corner) to receive project updates and learn about our next opportunity for public input.

Public feedback from the November survey will contribute to recommendations for future recreation facility investment, design and location. Thank you to everyone who took the time and provide their perspective on our Phase 1 engagement.
