What does the Rec Facility Study include?

The Rec Facility Study, also called a feasibility study, will focus on aquatics and ice components. However, the comprehensive approach will build on the foundation of the current Parks, Recreation & Culture Master Plan:

  • Extensive engagement with public and interested parties 
  • Analysis of scale and type of facility needed,
  • Site analysis including development of three to four design concepts,
  • Identification of additional recreation uses (building on the PRC Master Plan) such as fitness centre and indoor track,
  • Archeological, geotechnical, parking and traffic assessments,
  • Potential operating models and estimated costs
  • Leading trends, best practices and regional facilities comparisons
