UPDATE! Rink 2019/2020

October 18, 2019

Rink Boards

As announced last year the Rink Rejuvenation subcommittee has been working tirelessly to secure new rink boards and netting for the 2019-2020 season.  We are pleased to announce that they have completed the goal and in addition, we’re able to contract the regrading and sodding of the field (you may have seen work being done in the past couple of weeks).

The new rink boards will be delivered on Oct. 28th and set up will happen that day as well.  The Rink Committee is looking for volunteers to assist that day with unloading and to learn the new set-up procedure.  If we are short on volunteers we will continue set-up on Oct 29th.

If you are able to join/assist please email rink@winstonheights.ca.

Winston Heights Redevelopment Project

Real Estate & Development Services
Winston Heights Redevelopment Project

The City of Calgary is undertaking the planning of the large 22-acre site located in Winston Heights-Mountview on the northeast corner of 16 Avenue N.E./Moncton Road N.E.

The concept and outline plans that come out of these planning efforts will identify design details such as the location of the roads, pathways and green space, as well as what will be built on the site such as types of housing and commercial buildings.

We are currently in the first phase of this project and are seeking input from adjacent communities, stakeholders, potential future residents/businesses and the public on:

  • Evaluation criteria that will be used to assess concept options
  • Priorities and ideas for the site
  • Planning elements such as neighbourhood character, access to and travel within the site, and housing types

Join us at an upcoming interactive open house to learn more about this project and to share your ideas and input with the project team.

Open house
October 1, 2019 from 6 – 8:30 p.m.
Renfrew Community Hall
811 Radford Road N.E.

You are welcome to drop-in anytime between 6 – 8:30 p.m. There will be an opportunity to participate in a facilitated discussion with the project team at 6:30 p.m.

In addition to the open house, the public is invited to provide ideas and input online at calgary.ca/WHV from October 1 – October 15, 2019.

Please Note:  This 22-acre site does include the land that was formerly known as Midfield Park.  The City of Calgary website has referred to this site as Winston Heights Village.  To keep information consistent, future correspondence will refer to this site as Winston Heights Village or WHV.
