“Great recreational area”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

I haven't eaten in the restaurant there but have enjoyed the many great recreational facilities offered at Mac Island. The swimming pool and water park are wonderful, the 2-level library offers a great variety of books, DVDs and CDs, and the walking track and gym and top notch for exercising, especially when it's too cold to walk outside during a Fort McMurray winter. Also offers skating rinks, volleyball/basketball courts and exercise classes.

Thank Hiskid

“Great Facility...Poor Customer Service”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

This is a great place to take your family (not very many other choices in town). The pool is huge, modern and the kids love it. The library is very large and there are many physical activities to do. However, like everything else in this town, it is overpriced and understaffed. Do not expect any customer service. If you manage to get to the front of the line at the customer service desk do not expect a friendly smile.

“Kills some time - a much needed commodity in Fort Mac”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Reception staff - bored and disinterested.. gets better after you have dealt with them.
HUGE LIBRARY - I know!! In a sports centre!! Lots of computers available to use.
HUGE POOL - big kids area with slides etc. Big adult jacuzzi, steam and sauna rooms, diving boards - water a bit cool but once in and all that..
Good gym equipment with lots of machines - only the eve can get busy, Plenty of weights plus a separate weight room for all the meat heads to grunt and moan in..
Lots of other facilities inc badminton courts, squash courts, yoga and dance classes, brand new climbing wall - you can hire all equipment you need.
two ice rinks and mini one for kids. Playroom to leave little ones in. Curling rink.
Plus two MASSIVE sports hall for soccer etc, then upstairs right around the ceiling and indoor walking/running track.
Lots of different options for membership but the day rate at over 13 dollars is steep i think so i usually buy a monthly one for 50
