Funded and built by the City of Calgary, the new 100,000 sq. ft. the Remington YMCA will open in early July 2016. Named for sponsor and partner Remington Development Corporation, the multi-recreational facility will include both a learning and 25-metre swimming pool, indoor track, strength and conditioning centre, 62-space childcare and much more! The facility will also include a full-service Calgary Public Library.


Opening in mid August 2016, YMCA Calgary will also operate a state-of-the-art child development centre. The 348-space licensed childcare will provide quality care ensuring children receive learning, social and health benefits. Constructed by Remington Development Corporation and managed by the YMCA, this facility is located just one and a half blocks away from the Remington YMCA.



Presales were up and running as of May 7th at the Remington Sales Centre and there has already been huge community interest demonstrated. In the short 1.5 hours our team was there on May 7th, 70 people signed up and became YMCA members. The Remington YMCA member count is now
