Munro Park – Visioning Event! REMINDER for meeting dates

February 7, 2014

munro evite

The City of Calgary is giving Winston Heights/Mountview the opportunity to provide input into how we would like Munro Park to look and function in the future. Beginning with an initial “visioning” session on Feb. 19, residents can share their dreams of what the park could look like, their concerns about current park issues that could be addressed in a new plan, and their desires for amenities in the park.  The design firm, IBI Group, will facilitate the visioning process and use the ideas collected to create some possible park plans.

On April 16, they will showcase those plans at an Open House. There, residents can review the conceptual plans and provide more input and direction to the consulting team. In May, IBI Group will use the guidance from the Open House to develop and present a Master Plan for Munro Park. This document will guide the City and the Community Association for future developments to the Park.

If you are interested in unlocking the potential of this large park on the south and west edge of our community, please come out to share your ideas. All events will be held at Winston Heights Community Hall, starting at 7 p.m.

Happy Holidays and Merry New Year. Let’s Skate!

December 25, 2012

Ice Rinks Now Open!

Bring out your skates!  Haul out your hockey equipment!  It’s time to enjoy the best of winter!

The central ice rink and the skating oval at the WHMCA community hall are now open!  Not only that, the Adopt-A-Rink in the park on Marsden Road is open also!  Both rinks are available for free skating any time of day.  Hockey can also be played on the central ice rink at the community hall.  Both rinks will be lit for use in the evenings until 10:30 pm.

The central ice rink at the community hall has been reserved for the following activities each week starting in January:

Mondays – 6 – 9 pm Brownies
Tuesdays – 6 – 9 pm Grassroots Hockey

Fridays – 3 – 6 pm Girls Ringette

Saturdays – 1 – 3 pm Free Skate For All (non-hockey)

The oval will still be open for skating at these times.

Please be aware that the rinks will be closed on occasion to permit flooding of the ice, and also to clear snow.  When necessary, parts of the rinks may be roped off with orange pylons if there are problems with the ice.

Many thanks are due to Stacy Nephin and his team for getting the community hall rinks up and running this year.  Thanks also to Craig Baskett for setting up and maintaining the Marsden Road Adopt-A-Rink.  We will post a full list of people to thank shortly.
