Cardel Rec South

Cardel Rec South began as a "vision" of a community-based recreation centre for the residents of Fish Creek Provincial Park by a small group of concerned community residents in the mid 1990's. With perseverance and hard work, the Cardel Rec South became a reality in January 2001 with the opening of Phase 1; which was comprised of two arenas, one gymnasium and a couple of meeting rooms.

Working with three levels of government and a supportive community, the addition of two new arenas, five meeting/multi-purpose rooms, tenant's spaces and centralized administration offices were added to the Cardel Rec South in February 2012. With four indoor ice arenas under one roof, Cardel Rec South is the first community-operated quad arena facility in the province of Alberta.

In addition to first-class recreation facilities, Cardel Rec South also offers a complete range of recreational programs to the citizens of Calgary. To date, the community has benefited from a wide variety of structured and unstructured gym and ice programs, homeschooling lessons; as well as sports, language and arts programs.
