UPDATE October 7, 2021: Thanks to all of our loyal supporters we have raised half of the needed funds to complete the Gazebo remediation which is enough to repair the roof! We have a signed contract with Quest Construction so STAY TUNED! The new roof should be going on very soon. 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 Nov 6 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 Watch this space for more updates and other fundraising in support of the Gazebo Park!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
