Activate YYC Grant
WCA has been awarded an Activate YYC grant for a bump-out at Woodborough Park in Woodbine.
We would like to make this recreation area more inviting, visible and safe for all the community members that use the park. We are looking for some creative minds to form a committee to create the design for the area. We are hoping for the use of signage, flowers, lighting, and painting of the street.
We are expecting to complete this project by the end of June and will engage the community to help implement the design the committee agrees upon.
Please let us know if you are interested in joining this committee.
Seniors Outdoor Club of Calgary
Members of the Woodcreek Community are invited to join the Seniors Outdoor Club of Calgary Tuesdays to snowshoe, cross-country ski and hike in our beautiful mountains and foothills. We are members of the non-profit Seniors Outdoor Club of Calgary who get up early every Tuesday to drive to the Montgomery Community Association parking lot. There, we board a comfortable, coach-style, 55-passenger bus which leaves at 8 a.m. sharp and takes us to various trailheads in the mountains west of Calgary. We snowshoe/cross-country ski in the winter and hike in the summer. Hikes are curated by a very experienced trailmaster. Participants group according to their fitness levels. Various levels of hikes, from moderate to challenging, are offered and led by experienced member volunteers. There are many benefits to membership - carefree visiting, snacking and snoozing on your way from/to Calgary on the bus, becoming part of a wonderful social community but, most importantly, scheduling a weekly physically active date with nature which is known to be so mentally restorative!
