Drumheller's Indoor Recreation to Reopen June 21, 2021

Posted on Jun. 10 2021

As the province enters Stage 2 of the Open for Summer Plan, Drumheller’s Recreation Department is very excited and is working hard to reopen our indoor fitness facilities. This includes the Badlands Community Facility (BCF) and the indoor pool at the Drumheller Aquaplex.

Last week, in anticipation of the announcement of Stage 2, our team began recalling staff to work. Challenges in schedules have led to some delays, as well as some uncertainty of the operational hours in the early weeks of reopening. Hours of operation will be released as early as next week*, however will be subject to change as more resources become available.

*The BCF will open on June 21, 2021 from 6:00am - 9:00pm, Monday - Friday (Updated June, 14, 2021)

On May 7, the Recreation Department announced they were cancelling all memberships at both the BCF and Aquaplex. This cancellation stands as a credit on the account, allowing users to allocate funds toward recreation items beyond a membership, at their discretion.

The projected reopening date for the BCF and indoor pool at the Aquaplex is June 21, 2021.
