Games expected to inject around $650,000 into local economy

The City of Leduc is excited to announce its successful bid to host the Alberta 55 plus Summer Games in 2025. Roughly 1,200 athletes from around the province and those travelling with them are expected to generate approximately $650,000 in local revenue over the course of the event. 

"In Leduc we place a lot of importance on creating a healthy, active and caring community, so this event is a natural fit for us," says City of Leduc Mayor Bob Young. "I look forward to welcoming the athletes to Leduc and know they will be met with generous hospitality from our residents and business community." 

The provincial games feature over a dozen different sporting categories including track and field, swimming, cycling, golf, slo-pitch, horseshoes, pickleball, bocce ball, cribbage and more. 

Numerous local facilities and amenities will play host to the many competitions throughout the gaes, including the Leduc Recreation Centre, William F. Lede Park, Herb Reynar Memorial Park, Leduc Golf Club, Telford House and John Bole Athletics Park. 

Individuals interested in participating in the Games will need to become Alberta 55 plus members. Further details about the event will be shared with the community as more information becomes available.
