Gazebo Park Remediation!

You’ve likely driven or walked past “Gazebo Park” many times. Maybe you’ve sheltered under the Gazebo? Visited with a friend? Sat and read a book?

For anyone who has taken a closer look, after close to 20 years this park and the various structures need some TLC. SACA has been advocating for this community amenity for some time, and now in partnership with a group of local residents (Sheila, Mike, Kelly & Anita) we’re working with the City of Calgary Parks Department to see how we can complete the necessary repairs to see this park continue to be a welcoming feature in our community. The Committee will be meeting on Wednesday April 14 to review the quotes received to date, with the aim of developing a tiered scope so everyone will be able to see what each level of funds raised, will be enable the committee to achieve. This scope will be published here once finalized, so please check back regularly!

In early 2021 we launched the Save the Gazebo Fundraising Campaign. To date we’ve held two Bottle Drive’s and raised $2793.26; thank you to ALL who participated/volunteered. We’re hosting another Bottle Drive on Saturday May 29! We’ll have a donations truck in the SACA Parking Lot between 9am and 1pm so you can “drive thru” to drop off your bottles! We also hope to have a team of volunteers with trucks driving around the community to pick up bottles from those who would prefer to donate via curb side pick up. To volunteer or register your address for curb side pick up please email scenicvolunteers@shaw.ca!

Wondering how else you can help? We’re looking for volunteer skilled labour, donation of supplies, expertise in fundraising, unskilled labour, or a commitment to donate funds. To indicate your interest, please email scenicvolunteers@shaw.ca with how you believe you can support this initiative.
