Remington YMCA

Remington YMCA is opening July 2016!

YMCA Calgary is thrilled to join the thriving neighbourhood of Quarry Park to provide much-needed recreation and childcare services to residents and employees. We are partnering with the City of Calgary to bring a new health, fitness and aquatics centre to Quarry Park so all citizens will have the chance to become healthier, gain new skills, make friends, and most importantly, reach their potential.

Through an exciting partnership of the City of Calgary, the Calgary Public Library and YMCA Calgary, this 100,000 sq.ft. recreation facility will serve families, employees, groups and residents throughout southeast Calgary.

None of this would be possible without the support of our greatest advocate and champion in the area, Remington Development Corporation. Remington Development Corporation has been a driving force behind the YMCA’s presence in the Quarry Park Community.

They have invested $2-million in the YMCA through a transformative sponsorship resulting in the naming of the Remington YMCA in Quarry Park.
