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 included 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
Phase one was completed June 2017 and involved a new playground next to the Community Hall. Our playground has new equipment, 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
A spray park 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. Further engagement will continue over the coming months to further refine the plan.
