Facility Updates

Are RRC Facilities Open?

The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) moved ahead with a phased plan for re-opening public recreation facilities in Wood Buffalo. The RRC’s phased plan, included re-opening The Miskanaw Golf Club in early May 2020 in accordance with guidance provided with respect to Golf Courses in Alberta. This was followed by select amenities at MacDonald Island Park and Anzac Recreation Centre presented by CNOOC in June 2020. At this time, plans for re-opening Sonny Flett Aquatic Centre and the Conklin Multiplex are forthcoming More information on amenity re-opening . 

 Which RRC facilities were closed to the public?

All RRC facilities including MacDonald Island Park, Anzac Recreation Centre, Sonny Flett Aquatic Centre and Conklin Multiplex were closed to the public on March 14. 

 Why were RRC facilities closed to the public?

For the safety of our staff, members, and guests we closed RRC recreation facilities upon recommendations from Alberta Health Services in alignment with the Province’s prevention strategy for the COVID-19 outbreak.

Why did Miskanaw Golf Club open to the public earlier than other facilities?

As part of the Government of Alberta's Re-Launch Strategy, Golf Courses in Alberta were permitted to re-open on May 4, 2020. Miskanaw Golf Club is operating with a number of restrictions and public health measures in place. Learn More.
