Suncor Community Leisure Centre surpasses 10,000 member milestone
(Fort McMurray, AB, November 19, 2013) – MacDonald Island Park would like to sincerely thank Suncor Community Leisure Centre members and the entire community for its support as it passes the 10,000 member mark.
The Suncor Community Leisure Centre passed the milestone on August 23 and has remained above the threshold since that date. The number does not include Syncrude Sport and Wellness Centre members that were accommodated during renovations to that facility.
“This milestone membership number is one for which we are tremendously thankful,” said Tim Reid, Chief Operating Officer at MacDonald Island Park. “This really speaks to the incredible support we have received from members, the community and all of our partners. It has allowed us to establish an experience where membership matters, and an environment where we will always look to improve service and develop the facilities the region deserves.”
The Suncor Community Leisure Centre, opened in 2009, is the centrepiece of MacDonald Island Park, Canada’s largest community, recreation and events experience. MacDonald Island welcomes over 2,000,000 visits annually and has also been home to iconic events such as the Northern Classic, KISS concert, and the 2013 M&M Meat Shops Canadian Junior Curling Championships, and will be home to the Northern Kickoff presented by Shell Albian Sands in June, 2015. Membership to the Suncor Community Leisure Centre, or ‘Mi Play Pass’, includes access to most amenities and front-of-line privileges to programs and event tickets.
“Thanks to the strong support of Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Mayor Melissa Blake and Council and title partner Suncor Energy we have been able to improve accessibility to the facility, including family membership rates which have lowered in cost by close to 15% since 2012,” said Reid. “Additionally the 10,000 members milestone represents a 27% increase in membership since January 2012, highlighting the growth and sustainability of the facility, and more importantly, our region.
2013 also saw introduction of group membership rates, including the purchase of family memberships for all of its employees by Nexen Energy ULC, partner of Nexen Field House, Nexen Activity Field House and the Nexen Stage and Nexen Suite at SMS Stadium at Shell Place. Other group membership partners include Suncor Energy, Syncrude, Shell Albian Sands, Finning, Kal Tire, as well as other local corporations and organizations.
Memberships to the Suncor Community Leisure Centre can be purchased at Guest Services on the main floor of the Suncor Community Leisure Centre.
