We offer a wide range of programming and facilities to support healthy lifestyles, including programs for youth and seniors.
One of my favourite laid out facilities. Lots of entrances and room for gaggles of people to get around. Love that it's connected to the Ymca and library as well.
Great sports facilities, 3 arenas "& lots of meeting rooms. Calgary public library, YMCA facility and a Sr High school
Nice affordable basketball court. My buddies and I rent this place a couple of hours a week. The staff are punctual in opening and closing the gym. Pretty good!
Cardel Rec South is a community-based recreational center located in Shawnessy. The idea for the center was first proposed by a group of concerned community members in the mid-1990s. They believed that a center like this would be a valuable resource for the community, providing a place for people to participate in sports, fitness, and other recreational activities. The process of turning this vision into a reality was not easy, but the community was determined and worked hard to make it happen. Finally, in January 2001, the first phase of the center opened to the public. This phase included two ice rinks, a gym, and a few meeting rooms. The center has likely undergone additional development and expansion since its initial opening, but the core mission of providing a place for community members to come together and participate in recreational activities remains the same.
Cardel Rec is built on a foundation of strong values that guide everything we do. We believe in community, fitness, and sports. We are committed to excellence in all aspects and strive to continually improve.
Our organization is based on integrity, honesty, dedication and commitment. People, family, children are the most important focus of what we do. We value a well-run facility that is safe and accessible to all and is committed to the power of volunteer participation.
Working in partnership with communities and sport groups and collaborating with South Fish Creek Complex Partners to provide quality recreation, education, and social programs with access to all.
The South Fish Creek Recreation Association is a community focal point that is built on partnerships working together to provide well-managed and efficient recreational, educational and social opportunities
