A brand new recreation centre in the city’s northwest is one step closer to fruition following a groundbreaking ceremony last week, Wednesday Oct 15.
The Rocky Ridge Recreation Centre, a 285,000 sq. ft. facility, is slated to open to the public in 2017.
Located at 11,300 Rocky Ridge Rd. N.W., the building will offer views of the mountains, while still preserving a natural wetlands around grounds. The City of Calgary is working with YMCA Calgary as the Rocky Ridge facility operator.
The Rocky Ridge recreation facility is really a “building within a park.” Featuring views of the mountains and facing a wetland, the 285,000 sq. ft. facility will sit in the middle of a natural park. The building, including its curving roof structure, is designed to compliment the surrounding rolling landscape, including the hill that reaches Calgary’s highest natural elevation.
