BR2 was commissioned to review the current trends and feasibility of a new aquatics facility to meet the current and future needs of the region and be located in the City of Wetaskiwin. Through the project analysis process, it was felt that expanding the scope to review the master plan for the long term evolution of recreational and cultural facilities in the vicinity of the existing recreation grounds and the community was essential.
