A vibrant community hub of activity, culture, and growth.
This community facility is a central hub for the community and surrounding towns to support physical, social, and cultural health and well-being. The community was closely involved in the planning and design to ensure the facility met their vision and accommodated the needs of the community and stakeholders. As a multi-functional facility, users can find an indoor activity hall and playing field, state of the art training areas, locker and team rooms, offices and meeting rooms, multi-purpose group rooms, elevated walking track, banquet facility, children's play area, and art gallery.
Taking inspiration from the region's geologic history, the facility's horizontal design features symbolize the history of the community and environment in which it is set. The programmatic spaces have been arranged to take full advantage of the picturesque setting of the Red Deer River valley and hoodoo backdrop.
