Lights, Camera, Action!

Trico Centre for Family Wellness is celebrating 35 years in the community

2018 will mark the 35th anniversary of the Trico Centre for Family Wellness (Trico). Trico is a non-profit, community-owned facility that provides recreation, wellness and community services to over 30 South Calgary community partners.

Opened in 1983 as a cooperative community project, the Trico Centre has become well known for its programs and services to all ages, which are offered through aquatic, fitness, arena, gymnasium, multi-purpose rooms, studios, child care, and senior’ club centre facilities.

Indeed, major investments over the past decade in fitness, arena, wave pool refurbishment, and tenant spaces have aided Trico Centre to achieve ongoing success in its operations.

“This year is truly exciting for all of us at Trico,” says Brenda Smith, General Manager. “We invite everyone to join our family and celebrate together our storied success.” 

Many fun activities are planned throughout the year: 

* January 25 – On this day 35 years ago doors officially opened (35% off drop-in admission)

* February 19 – Funderful family day event in partnership with Shine FM

* March 7 – 35th Day of Trico’s 40 Day Fitness Challenge (35% off drop-in admission)

* April 15 (6:00-8:00pm) - 35% off Family Swim

* September 8 (12noon - 5:00pm) – Official 35th Anniversary Celebration

* And more…
