“Incredible Facility”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

I spent a week watching a sporting event at MacDonald Island Park this year. What a fantastic facility for the residents of For Mac! I spent most of my time in Arena 2 but took a walk around to check out the rest of the building. There are lots of exercise machines, two arenas, an 8-sheet curling rink, and a huge pool area, as well as several courts for racquet sports and a few canteens. The city's library is also part of the Park just inside the main entrance. The facility is expanding and construction was even underway in the dead of winter. I'll be curious to see MacDonald Island when these new outdoor facilities are complete. I suspect there will be a lot more parking space, since the existing lot was pretty full most of the time.

The process for ordering my event pass, which MacDonald Island Park coordinated, was easy. I just paid online and picked up my pass at the box office when I arrived.

Fantastic place for the kids (and adults!). Kids 2 and under are free and there is so much to do. Loved the Yogen Fruz treat after our swim.

“Not for the food though”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

As a rec center it is Great! I misread the review title. The food is just average high priced rec center food. When it is very busy with trade shows they can run out of favorites. The poutine is very good.
