Our Organization


Westside was built by community.

In 2000, a group of dedicated community volunteers, in partnership with the City of Calgary and hundreds of generous donors, achieved the dream of building a recreation centre in Calgary’s southwest. The commitment and contributions of those supporters resulted in Westside Recreation Centre, a facility that is enjoyed by more than one million visitors each year. In 2010, Westside conducted its first major expansion. The City of Calgary, Province of Alberta, and generous donors stepped up again, providing Westside with new and expanded spaces that will serve its communities for years to come.
