The Beaumont Sport & Recreation Centre (Aqua-Fit Phase 2) project is an expansion and modernization of the existing Aqua-Fit Centre to include a National Hockey League-sized ice surface, an indoor Fieldhouse (multi-sport amenity), a high school gymnasium, a climbing wall and a suspended running track. Other updates will include the integration of mechanical and HVAC systems.
Yes! The Aqua-Fit Centre is now called the Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre/ centre sportif et de loisirs Beaumont.
Construction is scheduled to take 20 months. Construction completion is scheduled for July 2020.
Cost estimates for the projects are $29.5 million. This results in an average yearly increase of approximately $72 (2018 dollars) for the residential homeowner in Beaumont.
Information about memberships and program impacts will be available September 20.
An accessibility plan is being developed to ensure that the public can access the building while construction is happening. Additional temporary parking is being reviewed in order to provide accessible parking close to the building. Staff will continue to work on this plan and communicate accessibility improvements to the public.
The temporary dog park will partially close as of October 1, 2018. The south west portion of the dog park will remain open until December 1, 2018.
New temporary locations are being reviewed and will be shared once a decision has been made. Options and updates will be announced soon, please check back regularly for updates.

For people who have their membership expiring after September 20, 2018, or who request a refund we encourage you to take a look at the other facilities and incentives when making a decision to purchase a membership. Please ask about our partner facilities offering incentives starting immediately.
If you choose to put your membership “on hold” you must visit Guest Services and complete the action form before December 1, 2018.
By placing your membership “on hold” you agree to forego member access to the facility during the closure period. In exchange you will get that time back to your membership after the closure.
If you choose to request a refund you must visit Guest Services and complete the action form before December 1, 2018. Your membership will be refunded on a prorated basis. This is determined by the amount of time you have left on your membership.
Example: If you purchased an annual membership on March 15, 2018 and would like a refund starting November 15, 2018. You would be refunded based on the days that will not be used (November 16, 2018 – March 14, 2019).
By requesting and receiving your refund you agree to forego member access to the facility during the closure period. You will not have access to the BSR (Formally the Aqua-Fit Centre), the LRC (Leduc Recreation Centre). We encourage you to use your refund towards another fitness facility of your choice and have provided information of some options and incentives. Please see attachment of fitness facility options and incentives.
Yes, if you request to use your membership at the LRC you must visit Guest Services at the Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre and complete the action form before December 1, 2018. You may use your membership until March 31, 2019 at the LRC if your membership is valid between December 1, 2018 – March 31, 2019. If you still have time remaining on your membership after March 31, 2019 you will be given a prorated refund. When you request to use your membership at the LRC you agree to forego member access to our facility.
Unfortunately no, you are required to choose either the BSR or the LRC. If you choose to use your membership pass or punch pass at the LRC you will need to complete the action form at Guest Services (Beaumont Sport & Recreation Centre) prior to visiting the LRC. A completed action form is required for us to give to the LRC to allow you access to their facility. You are required to choose only one option for your membership. This is because the City of Leduc only provides pass coverage when the Beaumont membership is not active.
Yes, we will be issuing prorated refunds for playtime starting September 21, 2018. If you feel that you are not able to use your facility membership due to playtime closing October 1, 2018 you may request a refund for both your membership and playtime pass. If you choose to request a refund you must visit Guest Services and complete the action form before December 1, 2018.
