  • I think a site very nice to say the best in the city, featuring pool or Park water heated, playground, daycare, gym, track inside of athletics, zone of scale as well as courts for basketball, volleyball and ice skating sports as hockey and curling which makes it attractive for those who are learning these sports. in the parking area are always events in each season that are either educational or commercial, but always attractive to the family.

  • I was amazed by the size of the water park for small children, it was a huge area & looked like a lot of fun. Pool was huge too. The centre was well maintained, clean & well used by residents. Beautif...  more »

  • Fantastic facility! I only visited here briefly but I was immediately impressed by the amenities- I mostly interacted with the library staff and took in the art gallery and both were extremely high quality. The library facilities were very very good and the staff was friendly and helpful, and the art gallery was quite remarkable as well. However, the most important part of any good multi-use community facility like this is the atmosphere, and that can only be formed if the place is actually in use! And MacDonald Island Park is clearly a community hub for a variety of interests, activities, and groups! The water park looked fun and was packed! The library had poetry reading events and people playing chess and reading all over! The halls were full of people walking, chatting and relaxing. Fort MacMurray should be proud to both have and animate such a tremendous site, and I'm sure if I got to spend more time in it it'd earn that fifth star.
  • Crazy how much work they put into this place! It's no wonder that its one of the only things to do in Fort McMurray. It's a little on the pricey side if your only going to be able to go a handful of time per month. That was the major disappointment along with that the basketball court is small and the rock climbing wall is basically pathetic. Yes it looks cool from a distance or in the photos but it fills up way too fast, way to small, the routes aren't well planned and are confusing to follow sometimes. However those are small problems compared to the height that you can boulder to and the requirements to be able to use the non-auto belay systems. It would be nice to see an upgrade to both of those parts, then I might buy a pass. On a side note the pool is great, I love the hot tubs and the slides are quite fun.
  • Equipment is run down. Water fountains taste good. Changing room smells like dirty socks. Have fun at the water park swiming in kids urine.
  • Amazing facility in a boring city. I enjoy my days off with a swim.
  • THE community centre of Fort McMurray. Great foods, great gym, great pools, and more! They never stop adding new areas. With the addition of Shell place, the ultra gym never seems to bore me.
