Sports and recreation facility feedback to be shared with council

Report will be presented during the June 10 council meeting

Following two open houses on a proposed sports and recreation facility in Spruce Grove, a summary report on the public’s feedback will be presented to city council in June.

The open houses, which were held May 15 and 16, were well attended by community members who were interested in reviewing the concept plan for the proposed facility, which would be located adjacent to Fuhr Sports Park and south of the TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre.

A summary of the feedback that was provided by the public is now being prepared and a report will be presented during the June 10 council meeting.

At the June 17 council meeting, City administration will present council with a final report on the project for their review and consideration for decision.

The proposed facility would serve a variety of purposes including:

  • Space for the Aerials Gymnastics
  • A foyer and reception area, including an art display and sports museum
  • Multi-purpose flex space suitable for uses such as combative sports programs, yoga or pilates
  • Shared community and non-profit group office and program space
  • Community storage space
  • Office space for City Recreation department staff
  • A non-commercial kitchen and spectator viewing area

The facility would be wholly owned and operated by the City, with the Aerials leasing the gymnastics space and all other community groups having the opportunity to utilize the facility's space and resources.
