With four pools: a leisure pool, a small pool, a whirlpool and a competitive pool, this St. Albert spot is a mecca for folks who enjoy splashing around in water. The leisure pool, heated to 30 to 32 degrees Celcius constant temperature, is perfect for relaxing; it has a series of small bays with water jets.

Hankering for a bit of dryland exercise? The centre features two racquetball courts, one of which can be converted into a squash court. There's also a studio room which sees double duty as a program room for exercise and aerobics classes. For folks who want some post-workout munchies, the centre's cafe has a wide range of food choices, including healthy options.
