Welcome to the Abbey Centre

Central Alberta's Place to Play!

As of September 20, the Abbey Centre will be running at 1/3 fire code capacity, in addition to social distancing and mandatory face coverings. Following Alberta Health Services protocols and to keep everyone safe and healthy, the Town will  be implementing the following COVID measures:
  • Adult group activities are postponed including recreational hockey, 3 & 3 Co-Ed volleyball league,
    drop-in fitness classes, and Field House Drop-In programs
  • Adults may use the field house provided they play on their own and remain physically distanced from others
  • No adult group activity bookings at any Town facilities at this time
  • Youth group activity bookings are permitted and youth can participate together provided they are screened by the group organizer, do not show any symptoms, and follow provincial COVID measures

Anyone who is feeling sick will not be granted access and are advised to stay home.


Centrally located between Calgary and Edmonton and just minutes away from Red Deer, Sylvan Lake and Lacombe, the Abbey Centre offers fitness and fun for all ages with over 41,000 sq. ft. of indoor recreational opportunities.

Explore the tunnels and slides in the 3-story indoor playground, or treat yourself to a quick bite at the concession after you work out in the state-of-the-art fitness centre while your kids are cared for by childminding.

Get away from the elements and take advantage of the 152-metre running track on the 3rd level, overlooking the activities in the triple gymnasium field house. Avid runners, walkers & cyclists will appreciate that the Abbey Centre is the only place in Canada where the Trans Canada Trail travels indoors (entrance on 2nd level).

In the summer months, cool off and have fun in the sun at the outdoor aquatic centre, plan a picnic in the park, let the little ones discover the dinosaurs in the playground, or take in the entertainment at the outdoor amphitheatre.

See you at the Abbey, where family, friends & fitness are found!
