Currently recognized as the world's largest YMCA and North America’s largest single wood roof structure, Rocky Ridge provides collaborative spaces to meet the community's needs. Every element of the facility, from its undulating lines and bold design, is a testament to structural engineering excellence, showing a high degree of creativity and innovation. Surrounded by natural wetlands, Rocky Ridge sits near Calgary’s highest natural elevation point and was purposely designed to complement the rolling hills of Alberta.
