About the proposed indoor fieldhouse

As part of its community recreation planning, Strathcona County is exploring the feasibility of a new indoor multi-use fieldhouse.

This approach is based on the County's Recreation and Culture Strategy findings that indoor field space, gymnasium/court space and fitness tracks are top development priorities for community recreation.

The proposed indoor fieldhouse could include a “full-size” non-boarded indoor turf with walking/running track, multi-use court spaces, multi-use meeting and program rooms and a social gathering/lobby space.

If approved, depending on the size, type, and scope of facility chosen, the overall cost for the facility (based on preliminary work done to date) is approximately $90M. This estimate consider the cost of building and site-related capital costs. 

For context, the proposed facility would be about two-thirds the size of Millennium Place. The indoor field and multi-purpose court space surface area is approximately 150,000 sq ft., making it significantly larger than the indoor fields currently at Millennium Place.

A site has not yet been selected for this potential project. Please note, this project is currently in the concept and planning phase. Administration will seek approval for the development of the fieldhouse later in 2020.

Current design and facility elements consider community needs growth projection, accessibility and alignment with the Strathcona County Recreation and Culture StrategyTourism Strategy and Social Framework, along with construction capital cost and long-term operating reviews.

Next steps
Next steps include sharing the public survey responses with Council as part of their consideration for the indoor fieldhouse, at an upcoming Council meeting later this fall.
