Awesome facility all around. Every level has more and more, a running track, weights, pool, squash, basketball courts. This is your one stop facility and it was super and the staff were great to deal with.

This YMCA is at the center hot spot of the city where parking is ample and the area is fully developed for pedestrians with wide right-of-ways for all including cyclists. There is even an IMAX located inside the Eau Claire center which contains many restaurants and amenities including fresh food markets and Wine shops. This is a major hotspot for... More

I was a member of this YMCA until we relocated. It is an excellent facility that is not over crowded and is well maintained- very clean! I used the pool, the gym and the sauna regularly; the staff is very helpful and friendly.

A lot of choices in equipment and work outs. Set in a trendy and beautiful location in downtown Calgary. Many jogging, walking, cycling paths along the Bow River can be reached from this location.

Just think of a field of everything. Gourmet restaurants, fruit and vegetable vendors and much of the best local market and growers can offer you. Enjoy the atmosphere with occasional street performers, music by local musicians and others. A whole day you need to discover all.

This downtown Y is a great chance to raise your energy levels by having a swim or workout in the gym. If you are staying at a nearby hotel you can call in advance in case you want to join one of their fitness classes.

This is my go to place to workout in Calgary. Clean and safe. Great equipment. Nice indoor track. Great outdoor running routes from this location as well. The treadmills are metric which is nice. Most of our treadmills at my YMCA in Medicine Hat are in mph. Very outdated.

There are a few YMCA's in Calgary and this is probably the best one and is fully-equipped. However, some facilities such as the deluxe change-room and the Jacuzzi are exclusive to the most expensive membership. This YMCA is in a convenient downtown location close to the Chinatown and is adjacent to the Eau Claire market.

Great place to work out !!! And it is right beside Princess Island Park. Which has a wonderful river front park to stroll and lots of good eating places. Usually kids outside in the waiting pool, ice cream stands, great food and entertainment in the Eau Claire mall right outside the doors. The pathway system has many people on bikes... More
