The Terwillegar Community Recreation Centre in Edmonton is literally one of the better off community centres in the area with features touted to be world class. With premium facilities that are accessible by membership, Terwillegar ensures you have an enjoyable experience. Visit the Centre to take advantage of their exceptional amenities which are geared towards health and pleasure and include a swimming pool with water slides, hockey rink, gym, sauna and more. They also have special facilities for kids, making it an ideal destination for your entire family. The Centre can be quite crowded at most times so make sure to plan before you go.
The pool area here has a wave pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, diving boards and swimming lanes. It is THE BEST swimming pool in the city. The indoor play place is also one of my favorites. Inside the red center there is also a Second cup and a DQ. This rec center has it all. Prices are great for monthly passes and there is something for everyone!
This facility, although modern, lacks the modern idea of fitness. There is limited space to do circuit training, weightlifting, and any sort of functional movements. Not bad if you're an average gym goer though!
So just to get this right, if you live in the area you have to PAY 35$ just to get the 20% discount on month to month membership. Then you will have to come in every day in attempt to get your membership for which you paid to get, and their systems will be down EVERY SINGLE TIME, so you will not get your membership. But you are welcome to pay a drop in fee every single day EVEN THOUGH YOU PAID TO GET THE MEMBERSHIP ALREADY until they get their systems back up, which will literally happen never since they said the systems would be up on the 10th, then on the 11th, now on the 15th.. You guys are a joke.
We have made requests for information from the swimming coordinator here and have never been contacted or our issues resolved. We booked our sons 4th birthday party here and spent the first hour cleaning up after the previous party and trying to locate the extra sports bin we had paid for. The swimming instructors are amazing and worth the price you pay; just don't expect any answers to your questions or correspondence from The City when you have complaints.
For such a big facility, you'd think they would have a decent size change room for the swimming pool. Wrong. The family change room is extremely small, barely enough room to walk between the lockers without rubbing again every person you come across. the shower area is a joke, so small and so few shower heads. U shaped, always in someones space. I had to wait more than ten minutes to get a change room with my kid. I saw only two yes two blow dryers in the entire change room. The place felt filthy, It felt very unclean. Pool was devided into a million little areas. The stadium pool in my opinion is the best in terms of space, cleanliness etc... will not be back unless major changes are made.
