Elevation Place is Canmore's indoor playground, boasting a huge indoor climbing wall, aquatics centre with waterslide and hot tub, cardio/weight room, library and art gallery. A great place to spend some time indoor with the family playing on the climbing wall or in the pool, or come on your own for a workout or to push yourself on the climbing wall.

On rainy days our girls went there and spent a few hours on the waterslide, pool-sized hot tub, the lazy river and we were happy to leave our 16 year old with her two younger sisters so that we could get some grocery shopping done.

It's a very community centre with a nice pool and wall-climbing facility next to a public library and small art gallery. The facility is beautiful to look at, lots of wood used. The climbing facility had friendly staff and quite a few walls to climb...More
