This vision was to develop a community centre to meet growing and unique recreation, sport, culture, and educational needs of NE Calgary. These residents envisioned a facility to bring together what continues to be the most culturally diverse quadrant of the city.

The vision for a multi-purpose complex in the northeast is for more than a recreation centre. The dream is to create a gathering place where diverse ethnic groups and residents can share together in recreational, educational, social and cultural activities. Utilizing 22-acres (8.9 hectares) in the heart of the community, the residents now speak confidently of a true ‘centre of community’ which will reflect the international and multicultural reality of northeast Calgary.
