Emerald Hills Leisure Centre FAQs

How are you going to improve the parking situation?

The new Emerald Hills Leisure Centre is attached to the Archbishop Jordan High School. This new partnership involves shared parking.

Strathcona County is working closely with ABJ to educate students and staff at both buildings in regards to where they should park.

ABJ has been tremendous in helping to find solutions that best meet everyone’s needs. Signage will soon be in place and an educational communication plan will be launched so we can maximize parking at peak times for our pool guests.

I’ve heard that Kinsmen Leisure Centre will close for renovations as soon as Emerald Hills Leisure Centre opens. Is this true?

Kinsmen Leisure Centre is scheduled to undergo mechanical and structural improvements, which will include the addition of a shared change room in the spring of 2017.

Strathcona County plans to keep the pool open for as long as possible during the construction. Some service disruptions are expected but will be communicated in advance. The Esso Swim Safe Centre (kids pool) will be closed during the structural and mechanical repairs.
