Came to Calgary bringing my son for the Age Group National swimming Championships. The facility is simply superb for competitions and some leisure. Very well maintained, clean, colourful, welcoming. Just besides a park, access is very convenient. If you are up for it, you can take the trail up and down the river or cross the park and head for... More

The Talisman Center has everything but an ice sheet. It is one of the best training facilities I've been in. 8 CAD for a day pass gets you into everything but the organized classes. Two 50m pools, dive tank, hot tubs, two weight pits, three sport courts, indoor track, cardio equipment, coffee shop, viewing gallery, etc.

You can borrow badminton racquets and birds and some other equipment. Also a suspended 4 land running track. There is lots of gym equipment, treadmills etc.. Also weights. There are four 25 metre pools... More

Talisman Centre has been around for a looong time. Before it becoming the Talisman Centre, it was called Lindsay Park. The olympic sizes pools are amazing attractions in itself. The Crazy high dive platform is probably the tallest in Alberta. The gyms are nice and modern and the indoor track albeit a bit small is sufficient on those cold winter... More

The facility is amazing! It is so big and there is so much to do. The downpart is that the price used to be way lower. The price scared me away for being a member for another year
