New Cor Van Raay state-of-the-art-facility third largest in North America

February 27, 2019

The $150 million new Cor Van Raay YMCA is the largest investment for a community facility in Lethbridge history. Project Coordinator, Ashley Matthews says despite the progress being made, no official opening date has been announced.

New amenities in the building include a large gymnasium with a running track, multiple courts and brand new, highly-advanced workout equipment. It also features an indoor play centre for kids and child care programs. The new aquatics centre is being developed with a wave pool, a lap pool, two waterslides, a 40 person hot tub, a surfing area and a lazy river, holding over 1.8 million litres of water. All amenities are fully accessible.

The new YMCA facility's namesake, Cor Van Raay, said he is very excited about the new leisure centre. The local businessman donated $3.75 million to the project.

Lethbridge's first Jugo Juice will also call the new YMCA home as its food and beverage provider and Lime Physical Therapy will provide wellness services.
