The South Fish Creek Complex is a unique and exciting project that brings together key community organizations in the development of a recreation, education, and library facility for the community. Located in the Shawnessy Town Centre, the complex primarily serves Calgarians residing south of Fish Creek Provincial Park.
The facility includes a Catholic senior high school, a public library, twin ice arenas, community gymnasium, public education space, and a full service YMCA. The Complex was completely operational by April 2002.
Having all of the various facilities "under one roof" allows one-stop shopping for all your recreation, education and library needs. It is a huge leap forward in bringing together agencies that serve the same community and have the same goals for community development.
The total project cost is $42.5 million, of which the City of Calgary contributed $25 Million. Building all the facilities together in one Complex saved approximately 10 percent or about $4 million, of what the cost would have been if each facility were to built separately.
The Alliance Partners involved in the operation of the South Fish Creek Complex are The City of Calgary, Calgary Public Library, South Fish Creek Recreation Association, Calgary Roman Catholic Separate School District No. 1, Calgary Board of Education, and YMCA Calgary. The average daily visitation to the Complex will be approximately 5,000 initially and is expected to increase to more than 6,000.
