The beautiful Meadows Recreation Centre is located in the South East corner of the city. The centre is a wonderful place to spend the day with your family.

For the record, the “Quick Scan” line is for people with membership cards who are scanning themselves in. The “admissions, memberships and registrations” line is for everything else.

Inside the Meadows Recreation Centre are hockey rinks, an Edmonton Public Library branch, plenty of programming rooms, fitness area complete with weights and track, gymnasium space, a great indoor playground, and of course the aquatics area.

The aquatics side is made up of several pools: a lap pool, an adjustable depth pool for teaching and fitness classes, a massive hot tub, a gradual depth leisure pool with squirting water features and kids’ favourite, the waterslide. The waterslide doesn’t eject you into the pool, so young kids can ride it without a lungful of water in the tank at the end.

The indoor playground is bright and colourful and not too tall, making it great for even younger kiddos. Your kids will love climbing through all the tunnels and burning off energy!
