New Indoor Aquatics Facility

Last fall, the City began a feasibility study exploring a new indoor aquatics facility.

The City’s Recreation Master Plan prioritizes a new indoor pool to address aging infrastructure, a community desire for contemporary spaces and the increasing need for year-round aquatics programming to better serve the competitive and recreation needs of our community.

The feasibility study will explore how this potential new facility will fit in with other aquatics programming around the city. We are also looking at considerations like project timelines and costs, sustainability and accessibility aspects and desired uses. This work includes community research and consultation with key stakeholder groups and the public throughout the process.

The proposed site is the Sportplex at 1717 Elphinstone Street. The study will consider how the existing infrastructure might fit into future plans.

The findings from the study will inform decisions on moving forward.

A new facility would contribute to our quality of life and make Regina a more vibrant and attractive place to live, work and visit.

Community Research and Engagement

Community research and consultation is underway.

  • 40,000 randomly selected households were invited to participate in an online survey.
  • The public were invited to participate in an online questionnaire.
  • Representatives from community groups have been invited to participate in an online questionnaire and upcoming focus group discussions.

There will be more opportunities for public engagement if the project moves forward.

Project Partners

The City is working with a consultant, hcma, who bring extensive experience in aquatics facility design, and an engagement agency, RC Strategies, to lead the project along with the support of a Community Advisory Committee.

The Committee is made up of local members with broad knowledge and experience that represent various sport programs and interests in Regina. The role of the Committee is to act in an advisory capacity and provide input and feedback to assist the project team, on items such as:

  • aquatic programming
  • competition requirements
  • community requirements
  • accessibility and inclusion requirements
