TIPS and TRICKS

1) You can MANUALLY input activities into Strava even if you track your distance with a different device, just look for the plus sign [+].

  • On mobile, this is found on the “Feed” screen.
  • On a computer, go to the Strava website, set up or sign in to your Strava account and choose the “Training” dropdown menu. Select “Activities” and find the plus symbol [+] in the top right corner by your profile picture.)

2) For those without access to the Strava app: submit your total distance (in kilometres) by e-mail: communications.director@inglewoodcl.com

3) If you take your family out for a ride, your children’s distance counts as well! So if your family of four takes a four-kilometre spin, you can report 16 km total!

Inglewood ‘Asesin’ Community Mural Completion Video

Hey Inglewood! Check out this AWESOME video by Lance Cardinal of Soulflame Creative Services showcasing the new mural on display at our Inglewood Community League Hall.

View the video here: https://fb.watch/5M-T97cMn1/

Park Street Projects hosted a collaborative mural here in Inglewood in September 2020 with Lance Cardinal, a local Indigenous artist, and Wild Heart Collective. Members of the Inglewood community were invited to participate to help create the mural in real time.

“This was a really good initiative that brought the community together to create something as a community to put up in the local garden and bring more Indigenous content to the neighbourhood. I absolutely love the beauty and the colours that were used in this mural and it really does pay homage to the bead workers and the crafters of the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people.”

Be sure to head down to the Inglewood Community League Hall (12525 116 Ave, Edmonton) to view the mural in it’s permanent location, near the community garden. The Community League hopes to have a community unveiling in the future that complies with all public health rules and guidelines, so be sure to stay tuned for updates and details.

Inglewood Neighbourhood Reconstruction

Inglewood is in the final year of Neighbourhood Renewal construction! If you live within the Phase 3 area, you’ve likely already received a pamphlet in the mail from the City about the schedule, access impacts, and more! In case you missed it, construction is tentatively scheduled to start this coming week, May 3.

For a breakdown of the planned projects by number in the neighbourhood, please see the Project Map (shown above).

The removal and replacement of public sidewalks, curbs and gutters and roadways is complete in projects 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. Not all the sod in projects 13, 14 and 15 was installed so we will be returning in early spring to finish the landscaping.

The outstanding landscaping from 2019 is complete (projects 10, 11 and 12).
Street lighting in projects 12, 13, 14, and 15 is ongoing and includes running new conduit, drilling new pole bases, then installing new poles and re-energizing the lights. EPCOR is energizing the new poles and completing their quality control checks while removing the old pole bases; this work will continue through 2021.

Neighbourhood renewal work will resume in Inglewood in May 2021, weather pending. Prior to work resuming, construction notifications will be delivered to impacted residences. We are pleased to report that, with the completion of 2020 work, Inglewood remains on schedule with a planned completion date of November 2021.
