Spruce Grove, Alberta


City of Spruce Grove




$10.4 million


January 2016

In 2011, the City of Spruce Grove conducted preliminary design work on a new stand-alone gymnastics-based facility; however, after a number of other community needs were determined the City decided to build a multi-purpose sports and recreation facility to act as Spruce Grove’s hub for recreation and not-for-profit activities within the community as well as an administrative centre for the City’s recreation staff.

The purpose of the building was to house a variety of sport and leisure activities, while offering flex space for non-for-profit organizations, a sports museum and additional storage space for the neighbouring Fuhr Sports Park.

JEN COL Construction became construction manager of the 4,198 m2 modern, state-of-the-art complex in 2014 which includes a 1,410m² gymnasium, a large playschool area, multi-purpose rooms, meeting rooms, workstations and storage. There is also a large shelled space on the third floor that is semi-finished for expansion or a future tenant.

Since opening to the public in 2016, the Border Paving Athletic Centre has become a vibrant, dynamic gathering place for the health and well being of the City of Spruce Grove, fostering opportunities for community groups and City staff to network, build relationships and advance.
