    Emerald Hills Leisure Center is Strathcona County's first indoor recreation facility that shares a site with another major community facility, Archbishop Jordan High School. From the first week Emerald Hills was open, traffic and parking challenges were identified and a team was assembled to create a solution. Through this team, a new traffic safety plan was created and a re-alignment of parking areas was agreed upon.

    Emerald Hills Leisure Centre was originally allotted 68 parking stalls, through cooperation with Archbishop Jordan High School, the number of parking stalls for Emerald Hills Leisure Centre guests has now increased to 120. 

    Throughout December, Elk Island Catholic Schools has been signing students up for parking passes and educating them about the change in parking locations. Working with the RCMP, during the first week back at school in January, students will continue to be educated and a soft enforcement campaign will begin. Following this campaign, RCMP and Elk Island Catholic Schools will continue to monitor the parking lots and ensure that students are parking in the appropriate zones.

     Parking lot signage will go up in the new year to indicate parking zones. 

Children under 8Y must be within arms reach of someone 14Y+ at all times while in the pool. The ratio of supervision is 1:3.
