Did you know...
  • Did you know that our fitness centre space will roughly double compared to what we have now? We currently have 2200ft2 and our new facility will be roughly 5000ft2!
  • Did you know that the daycare is currently running a waiting list of between 12 and 20 children? Our expanded daycare will be able to accommodate all of those children, with a few more spaces at the ready too!
  • Many residents are keen to get into the fabulous new fitness facility, and we want to make sure everyone understands that while there will be a few pieces of equipment replaced as part of the recapitalization budget, there is not enough in the budget (and our grant specifically does not support furniture and the like) to buy all new equipment. If you are interested in forming a not for profit organization with the goal of accessing funding opportunities to purchase new equipment, contact the Jasper Activity Centre to be added to the interest list.
  • Dominion Construction has been site separating our renovation waste and recycling much of it since day one of our project? Only clean wood and chemical waste is going to the Jasper Transfer Station for appropriate disposal, while metals and concrete are sorted, cleaned and sent to the Hinton station for recycling. General waste (what little there is) is also sent to Hinton.

About the renovation

Increasing demand for upgraded fitness facilities and daycare space has been clearly communicated by residents and visitors, including but not limited to a community consultation process on facility use in 2006. The infrastructure of the aging Activity and Aquatic Centres are rapidly becoming functionally obsolete, and in need of replacement with new, high efficiency equivalents. The Municipality of Jasper has secured funding for this project and has contracted the design architects Toker and Associates. 

The objectives of this program are to:

  • Inspire Community Wellness through increased service capacity, sustainability, and environmentally conscious role modeling;
  • Respond to community demand for a larger and more inviting fitness centre, including climbing facilities;
  • Increase daycare space to meet the current and future needs of the community;
  • Improve allocation and efficient use of existing space; and
  • Investigate and identify potential cost effective opportunities for energy efficient technologies.
