The Inglewood Community League Board is excited to announce that fundraising for Phase 2 of the park redevelopment is now moving forward! Phase 2 is about building a spray park beside the completed playground next to the community hall (Phase 1). The League will be fundraising for the Spray Park this fall.
In 2013 and 2014, discussion took place with residents, League neighbours, supporters, and the City of Edmonton, about redeveloping the Community League’s park. This feedback supported volunteer efforts to pursue an overarching park redevelopment. The plan developed through this discussion is included below. The plan shows replacing the existing playground and the addition of a new spray park feature. A project of this scale required the League to look at a step-by-step approach to completing this work!
PHASE 1: PLAYGROUND
If you haven’t been by league grounds (next to the Community Hall) recently, please drop by and visit our new playground which celebrated its grand opening in June 2017. Our playground has new equipment, new rubber surfacing, large shelter, bike bumps, along with extra benches and picnic tables. Completion of phase 1 was made possible by many passionate volunteers led by Inglewood Community League Board Member, Jaki Campeau, who backed the vision and creation of a fun safe space for all Inglewood residents, young and old.
PHASE 2: SPRAY PARK
With the final touches of phase 1 being addressed, the League is getting ready for fundraising for the next phase – the addition of a Spray Park! This feature was highlighted as one of the main attractions Inglewood residents wanted within their community. As a part of preparing the league grounds for phase 2, the former rink shack – the older wooden building near the new playground – will be demolished. This will allow for the Spray Park to be built beside the new playground, enhance sight lines around the grounds to improve safety and security for all users, and provide space for a larger spray park.
PARK REDEVELOPMENT CONCEPTUAL PLAN
Stay tuned for Inglewood Community League events and activities that help raise funds, share information, and engage residents on the Spray Park concept!
The Each One, Teach One financial literacy series of workshops are coming to Woodcroft Public Library in September and October! These free workshops are 90 minutes and led by volunteers from financial institutions (yet no selling is involved, they simply want to educate people so they can make better financial decisions for themselves).
For more information on the workshop series, visit: www.myunitedway.ca/each-one-teach-one/
There you will also find the registration links for each workshop.
