Background

Since 2014, City staff have been reviewing the recreation and fitness needs of the community. To do so, they conducted community consultation, a formal needs assessment, partnership exploration, site and concept feasibility work, development discussions, interviews with recreation experts, and other community site visits.

In 2020, staff explored feasibility, costs of access and servicing, and other technical requirements prior to presenting Council with location suggestions. Following the site selection last November, staff have been developing governance and operational plans, and have continued consultation with Chestermere’s existing sport and recreation groups.
