About the Project
The Coronation Park Sports and Recreation Centre will be a shared facility that meets community recreational needs, while also creating opportunities for year-round triathlon and cycling training and events.
The project will create more community recreation space and will connect to the Peter Hemingway Fitness and Leisure Centre, an architectural award-winning aquatic centre, through an above-ground link.
The Coronation Park Sports and Recreation Centre will include an indoor cycling track, walking/running track, fitness centre, bouldering wall, gymnasiums, multi-purpose rooms and studios, an indoor play space and more.
Once complete, the Coronation Park Sports and Recreation Centre will be seeking a Category Two facility standard designation by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), which is the world governing body of cycling. This designation qualifies a facility to host World Cups, Continental Championships, Junior World Championships and other national and international cycling events.
The project has been advanced in partnership with the Argyll Velodrome Association and World Triathlon Series Edmonton. Along with a financial contribution, these partners have been engaged in facility design and will hold important roles in animating the centre for community and sport patrons.
