About the Project

The new recreation centre, set to be located at 10450 72 Avenue NW, will be a small recreation facility that responds to the facility assessment, demographics and community needs. The project is currently funded for planning and preliminary design. Detailed design and construction are currently unfunded. 

The planned location for the new facility is identified in the Rollie Miles Park Master Plan (20MB). While this project is separate from the Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park Renewal project, both project teams maintain close communication and recognize coordination is important for design alignment, community engagement and project success.

Based on past community consultation, this recreation centre will be designed to include the following features:

  • Fitness area
  • Gymnasia
  • Multi-purpose room
  • Aquatic element with a lane and teaching pool
  • Multi-purpose court to support basketball, ball/roller hockey, toddler cycling and other uses

The project includes the eventual demolition of the City-owned building formerly leased by the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues.

The existing tennis courts are planned to be rebuilt further west to allow sufficient space for the recreation centre and related amenities.

The official name for this facility will be formally reviewed and approved by the Edmonton Naming Committee before the completion of the project in accordance with the Edmonton Naming Committee Bylaw.
