It’s always a great time to head to the playground, to wind down after a day at school or work and to spend some time with family. The playground at Hidden Close/Hidden Way was completed and opened in 2018 and quickly attracted the attention of many children and families in the area. Go enjoy the new playground area, have a picnic at the new picnic table or have your children put on a puppet show. We hope our community will enjoy this space for years to come.
The Hidden Valley Community Association would like to thank Sandy C. for mastering this project. We would also like to thank the Parks Foundation Calgary for their guidance, Henderson Play for designing and creating such an amazing space, the City of Calgary for donating some work “in-kind” and additional financing. We donated a large piece of our Casino income to start this project. We also applied for a Community Facility Enhancement Program grant from the Alberta Government and this, in addition to matching money from the Hidden Valley Community Association and the City of Calgary, enabled us to complete the funding for this project. We are so grateful now and into the future to all the efforts of all the participants.
The City of Calgary approached the HVCA in early 2017 and asked if we would like to be a part of this playground revitalization. We jumped at the chance! There are many more playgrounds in Hidden Valley/Hansen Ranch and I encourage you to participate in their revitalization.
If you are interesting in being involved in future playground revitalization in our community please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
