Morinville Leisure Centre - 3D Rendering of the Fitness Area
We're pleased to share with you a 3D visual walk-through of the fitness area that will be located on the 2nd floor of the Morinville Leisure Centre.
The space will feature modern equipment including cardio, low impact and free weights to offer the best health/fitness experience for facility users.
To better ensure safety of our users, the fitness equipment has been moved into one area, as shown in the video.
Plans are in the works for spontaneous use equipment to be available on the main floor adjacent to the running/walking track.
We have been fortunate to receive $25,000 from the New Horizons grant, which has allowed us to enhance the fitness space by purchasing three low-impact pieces of equipment. They are designed for low-impact and rehabilitation.
Stay tuned for further updates as we near the opening of the Morinville Leisure Centre!

• Sustain the provision of one indoor ice in Morinville. • Enhance wellness and physical activity opportunities by providing space for walking/running and fitness programming. • Provide indoor multi-purpose space to meet programming needs for indoor soccer, basketball, volleyball and a variety of other programs. • Provide an emergency reception center
