Since the old playground was dismantled in August it's been a busy time.
We are excited to announce
the Hazeldean Community League playground is open.
Thank you all for your donations and support! We couldn't have done this without you!
Please note, the official opening will be in the spring when our lovely community supported archway is built and the landscaping is finished.
Tear down of the Hazeldean Playground started the week of August 11th. Thanks to all of the hard work and generosity of members of the Hazeldean Community we have raised enough funds to ensure that the new playground will be an exciting and amazing space for our kids to play. Weather cooperating, the playground will hopefully be complete before the snow flies.
We still have more plaques available for our grand entrance feature, so if you have been thinking about dedicating a plaque to your kids or someone you love, now is the time. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call Carrie at 780-433-4186.
Hazeldean Playground committee is on the home stretch to reach our fundraising goal!
60 new plaques have become available for the playground on a first come first serve basis.
For just $150, you can have your name in the playground entrance for the next 30 years. Picture your name under the GRAND CLOCK.
Please contact us through the Facebook page Hazeldean Park or email us at email@example.com for more information.
Please note that no matter what the playground will be built.
However depending on the funds raised, certain playground elements may be installed at a later date if our fundraising goals are not met.

Hi there neighbours,
We are sad to report that we still have a few issues delaying the opening of the spray deck this spring:
1)There has been some damages to the spray deck that need to be fixed before it can be turned on.
2) The main issue continues to be the water pressure. The City and the community league are working on this issue very hard. We ask you all for your patience in this matter so that we can come to a proper long term resolution.
If you have any questions or concerns please call Dawn at 780-439-0847. Leave a message and she will get back to you ASAP.
