Gazebo Park Remediation!

HELP US RAISE FUNDS! Save your Bottles to donate on Saturday January 8 or make a Tax Deductible Donation via the Parks Foundation Calgary

Funds raised as of Nov 30, 2021

UPDATE December 1, 2021: Thanks to all of our loyal supporters we have raised half of the needed funds to complete the Gazebo remediation! We’re thrilled to announce the roof has now been replaced along with some of the rotting wood. Thank you to Quest Construction for helping us pass this first hurdle. We need your help to raise the remainder of the money needed to finish the remediation of the Gazebo. Please save your bottles for our next drive which will be on Saturday Jan 8 or see your tax donations at work in the community and receive a Tax Receipt for your donation. All you have to do is click on the link below and select “Scenic Acres Gazebo Park” from the drop down list, which will ensure your donation is applied to this initiative: Learn more at: https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/ParksFoundationCalgary/communityprojects.html

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

Wondering why we’re fundraising? 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? If you take a close 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 Lee our Parks & Environment Director in partnership with a group of local residents (Sheila, Mike, Kelly, Craig & Anita) are 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.
