Community effort instrumental in creating a beautiful park for residents to enjoy

After months of hard work and dedication from generous volunteers, landAltTextscaping companies, contractors and staff, a new park at the corner of Rainbow Road and Chestermere Boulevard is nearing completion.

Every time we see a new park being developed in our community it’s exciting but this time was truly special because of the heart that has gone into it through community volunteers,” said Mayor Patricia Matthews. “We can’t thank them enough for working so closely with the staff at the City to create a truly spectacular entrance to Chestermere!”

In 2016, the City began work on the park including the addition of the new ReidBuilt Centre for Community Leadership building that provides a home for Synergy and other local non-profit organizations. Other components of the project included the construction of a parking lot, pathways and a sidewalk on Rainbow Road.

“During the summer of 2016, Synergy committed to landscaping a small three meter perimeter around the Centre for Community Leadership.  After reaching out to local landscape companies for ideas, what they offered surpassed our wildest dreams,” said Patricia Sproule, Executive Director of Synergy.

By early 2017, several companies got involved in designing and implementing landscaping ideas for the space. Determined to provide an outdoor environment that would be welcoming to visitors and create an attractive entrance into the City, these companies have generously supplied time and contributions to make the vision a reality.

“The Park would not have been possible without the companies and volunteers who donated their time and materials to this project,” says Kathy Russell, Parks & Recreation Manager at the City of Chestermere. “Everyone who contributed made this a beautiful community space for all to enjoy.”

A grand opening and donor recognition event for the new park will take place September 22, 2017. Stay tuned for more details.
