“Workout heaven”

Westside Recreation Centre
Ranked #155 of 311 things to do in Calgary
Attraction details
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Awesome fitness facility, brilliantly managed by Mark. Staff are friendly, helpful, understanding, friendly, and knowledgable. Jo-Anne in member services is delightful to deal with. These folks make you want to find ways to help them out. In this regard I prepared an extensive travel review of the Nayarit province in Mexico. Facility is huge, with multiple areas for working out. Designated teen area, kids areas, pool, rink, loads of parking, decent day rates, and easy access on the new leg of the Calgary west LRT.

The variety of activities available make this a great spot for those looking for physical activity. The small lunch area, inside the main entrance, and on the left, across from the swimming pool's observation windows, is a great spot for ' ... people watching.' Although the large ice rink has very little seating, it's worth checking out. And the Calgary Flames National Hockey Team practice here, although not on a regular schedule. The free skating area is my favourite. This isn't a flat surface, frozen pond, it is more like learning to skate on a river. There's a flat area above the winding frozen 'river', and an (electric) fire adds a nice touch. Skate changing area is available. All in all, a great facility.

Everything you like under one roof. Poolarea with a huge waterslide and wave-swimming, climbing wall, leisure ice in winter and skater track in summer, skate park, skating rink, gymnasiums, a huge exercise area with running track and lots of exercise equipments, rooms for children birthday partys or homework done under supervision and, and, and. After renovation very clean locker rooms. Nice place to spend your free time or just exercise.
