Vivo is more than a recreation centre - we're on a mission to raise healthier generations in Calgary and beyond. We offer a fitness centre, pool complex, gymnasiums, climbing wall, ice rinks, public library, sports medicine clinic and café, plus a wide variety of programs and services for all ages and abilities. We’re a community hub where individuals, families, volunteers, athletes, coaches, educators, business and community leaders can meet under one roof. Since 2004, we have welcomed more than 13 million visitors to swim, climb, dance, run, sweat, create, learn and grow into healthier, more active lifestyles. Our holistic approach to health and wellness enables us to build stronger communities in north central Calgary and across the city.
