The two centres are pretty much the same, but they each have features that make them unique destinations. Southland offers gymnastics, a climbing wall and courts for squash, racquetball and wallyball; Village Square has a jungle gym play area for preschoolers and the legendary Thunder Run waterslide (it’s so high it extends past the roof!).
Both centres have programs exclusively for kids, teens, adults and families. Get full program information at calgary.ca/leisurecentres.
Starting in September, the leisure centre arenas will be going full force on skating and shinny hockey programs. If you’re renting the ice at Village Square, be sure to ask about the fireplace – and then don’t forget the marshmallows!
Get a glimpse of Village Square’s renovations in my interview with Deb Dunnigan, superintendant of products and services at VSLC.
