After completing programming exercises for four recreation facilities in the City of Calgary, Counsilman-Hunsaker in association with GEC Architects, was retained to provide design and engineering services for two new recreation centres in the City of Calgary: Quarry Park Recreation Facility and Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility.

The facilities were designed to serve the needs of both residents and employees from the surrounding communities. The centres will act as a community hub to increase opportunities for community gatherings and social connections.

The Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility is approximately 300,000 sq. ft. and sits in the middle of a natural park, featuring views of the mountains and surrounded by wetlands, nature trails and pathways. The facility will feature aquatics, leisure and sport ice rinks, gymnasiums, a fitness centre, an open-concept self-service library, a theatre, an art studio and exhibition space. Aquatic amenities include:
