Calgary AB – A $2 million investment to support wellness by Remington Development Corporation means the new City of Calgary-built recreation facility currently under construction in Quarry Park is getting a new name. It will be called the Remington YMCA*. The Remington YMCA is one of three new City-owned, YMCA-operated facilities currently in development. It will provide opportunities for recreation, leisure and learning through aquatics, fitness, and sports facilities, as well as multi-purpose spaces, licensed childcare, and a full-service Calgary Public Library branch.

“Remington Development Corporation’s vision has always been to have a live/work/play community and this new facility is rounding out this vision.” said Cody Clayton, President, Remington Development Corporation.

“A huge thank you to Remington for this remarkable investment in our community,” said Mayor Naheed Nenshi. “It is about building community ties, and that is what the Y does every day.”

“We can look at Quarry Park and see the changing face of the southeast,” said Shane Keating, City Councillor for Ward 12.

“Remington’s vision and commitment to this part of town and this community is amazing,” said Helene Weir, President and CEO, YMCA Calgary. “We’re grateful for this generous gift and are thrilled to be partners in this to make a difference in the lives of Calgarians.”

Slated to open in 2016, the 100,000 square foot facility will provide health and wellness resources for families in Quarry Park and the surrounding southeast Calgary communities.
