Based on information received through a public survey and open house held in February 2011, Canon Design has made these and other enhancement suggestions:

  • Enlarge the fitness centre
  • Add 4 new squash courts
  • Add additional multi-purpose rooms
  • Provide a new children’s area
  • Add a hot tub to the pool deck
  • Add a sauna or steam room on deck
  • Provide a training centre for high performance athletes
  • Renovate the warm-up and competition pools
  • Add new meeting space and gathering areas
  • Provide additional parking; and
  • Build an entrance and information desk at ground level for improved accessibility

Once feedback is received on the suggested enhancements, a formal recommendation will be presented to Edmonton City Council in the fall.

Proposed Improvements (priority to be determined):

Zone A - North Lobby Addition

Existing stairs and ramps replaced with new grade-level lobby including control, services and seating areas. The new 'glass box' would feature day-lighting and views.

Zone B - Core Renovation

Re-using outdated racquet courts on two levels to create new family change, locker room expansions, on-deck steam / sauna rooms, 6 additional multi-purpose and meeting rooms, and a doubling of the fitness centre to 15,000 square feet.

Zone C - West Annex

Outside behind the dive tower, the 2-storey addition would feature a dry-land training centre on a second level and storage and park washrooms on the main level.

Zone D - South Core Annex

4 new convertible international squash courts would be built beside the existing non-conforming courts. Movable demising walls would allow for use as 2 large additional multi-purpose spaces.

Zone E - Concourse Renovation

Fixed seating on the concourse level (south side of the main pool) would be removed, a platform built and a series of office spaces added. On the partial 3rd floor, offices and meeting rooms would be added.

Zone F -Fieldhouse Re-Surfacing

Improvements to the fieldhouse would include new sport floor and upgrade of the upper running track. Further improvement to storage and conversions.

Zone G - Aquatics Options

Only one of the following will be selected:

Option 1: New deeper warm-up tank (same footprint) featuring a new bulkhead and partial movable floor. New accessible 25-person hot tub on deck added.

Option 2: Warm-up tank, wall and roof are removed and replaced with a new structure housing a 52m X 25m deep tank with bulkhead, ramp, and partial movable floor, plus added storage. Hot tub added on existing deck.

Option 3: New structure and tank as in Option 2, except wider to accommodate retractable on-deck spectator seating. Hot tub added on existing deck.
