I drove by the construction at the Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility the other day before Country Hills was closed down for a few days. It is located in the NE corner of Country Hills Blvd NW and Rocky Ridge Rd NW at 1130 Rocky Ridge Rd NW. The rec centre is awesome to see and am looking forward to opening day.  Scheduled to open in early 2018 the facility will provide anticipated new facilities to keep us all active and busy. The design details both the exterior and interior use spaces.
