Jasper Recreation Facilities Renovation Project

We know our facility is a little harder to navigate right now. Click here to download a helpful map.

Estimated Cost: $20.4 million

In 2019 the Municipality of Jasper secured $3,053,515 in provincial grant funding and $3,664,584 in federal grant funding towards a major renovation of the Activity Centre, Arena, and Fitness & Aquatics Centre facilities. Since August of 2021, administration has engaged a Project Management firm (WSP), a Prime Consultant (GEC Architecture), a Cost Consultant (DMC Cost Management) and a Construction Manager (Carlson Construction).

On February 22, 2022, Committee provided direction to administration on which design concepts should be further developed for Council’s consideration. On May 3, 2022, Council approved an expanded project scope and a total project budget of approximately $14 million. On September 27, 2022, Council approved the adjustment of the project scope to continue the design process with three (3) new arena dressing rooms and endorse the design concept of non-gendered change rooms in the aquatics centre.

On June 20, 2023, Council approved the increasing the Recreation Renovation Project budget by a total of $6.4M, to be funded by debenture. The cost increase is due to the impact of inflation since the project concept was originally developed.

The project willaddress significant lifecycle reinvestments in mechanical and electrical systems; improve physical accessibility and inclusion in a number of areas; fully renovate and modernize Aquatics Centre changing areas; fully renovate all existing Arena dressing rooms while adding an additional 3 new dressing rooms.

The Municipality of Jasper would like to express its gratitude to residents, business owners, and visitors for their patience and support as we undertake this transformative renovation project. We are confident that the enhanced Activity Centre will enrich the quality of life for all community members and contribute to a vibrant recreational environment in Jasper.


The Municipality of Jasper is committed to maintaining open lines of communication with residents, businesses, and stakeholders throughout the construction phase, and ensuring that access priorities are met to the best extent possible.
Regular updates on facility access, scheduling, and any necessary adjustments will be provided here.


The Jasper Recreation Facilities Renovation Project continues to be on track to finish within budget in Q3 of 2024 as anticipated.

The Jasper Recreation Facilities Renovation Project continues to be on track to finish within budget in Q3 0f 2024 as anticipated.

The staged re-opening of the Aquatic Centre will not start in Q1 of 2024 as anticipated. Previously unknown site conditions that required extensive hazardous materials removal, and significant re-design have affected the Aquatic Centre construction timeline. The Aquatic Centre is now anticipated to open in mid-Q 2 of 2024. We know that residents are eager to get back into the Aquatic Centre, and we apologize for this unanticipated extended closure.

The Activity Centre basement and upper Curling Lounge will not re-open in Q2 of 2024 as anticipated due to site conditions related to the elevator placement and existing building structure constraints. The anticipated competition date for these areas has been extended to Q3.
