Weighing in on the Future of the Kinsmen Sports Centre

Since its official opening on January 3, 1968, Edmonton’s Kinsmen Sports Centre has been the home away from home for hundreds of high performance athletes and fitness-minded Edmontonians.

It’s also been a venue for some of Canada’s most high performance sports competitions taken in by visitors from across Canada as well as local athletes.

The City of Edmonton wants to maintain the Kinsmen Sports Centre’s reputation as a first class training facility and is currently looking at ways of giving the centre a fresh new look and feel that will take it into the future and we want your input. The public is invited to attend:

Kinsmen Sports Centre Open House
Tuesday, May 31, 2011
Kinsmen Field House
9100 Walterdale Hill
4:00pm – 8:30pm

Displays, Preliminary Concepts and Presentations at 5:30 & 7:30 p.m.

This is the second open house at the Kinsmen Sports Centre. Back in February of this year, the City embarked on the development of a Kinsmen Master Plan. The plan will outline the future of the Kinsmen Sports Centre, including possible renovations to the facility. In developing the plan, the City asked the public for its ideas and thoughts on what changes would make the Kinsmen Centre an even better facility.

Consultants, Canon Design, took the information received through an Open House, as well as an online survey, and have recommended the following enhancements that can be seen in the design concepts provided.

The City of Edmonton is now once again asking the public to weigh in on the proposed enhancements. These are only proposed concepts and are not final.
