I hope that everyone has had an enjoyable summer and is ready for autumn. Fall brings cooler weather but remains 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 this summer and has already drawn the attention of many children in the area. Come and 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.

I would like to send out a special thank-you to the Hidden Valley Community Association for their support, Parks Foundation Calgary for their guidance, Henderson Play for designing and creating such an amazing space, the City of Calgary’s Parks Department for all they have done and all they continue to do to keep our community parks and playgrounds in good condition and well maintained. I would also like to send out my thanks and recognition to Katherine, Leif, Guirlene and Yvonne whom were instrumental in determining the equipment we wanted to see in this playground, in choosing a designer that could do this for us and in helping to make decisions all along the way. Every one of them helped us to create the playground we have today.

The City of Calgary approached the HVCA in early 2017 and asked if we would like to be a part of this playground revitalization. I jumped at the chance! I have lived near this playground since 2002 and my children have played and continue to play at this playground. This was an exciting and new opportunity to help in my community. I sincerely hope the community will enjoy what we have accomplished. There are many more playgrounds in Hidden Valley/Hansen Ranch and I encourage you to participate in their revitalization.

I will be stepping down from this role once the last of my duties to this project are completed. If you are interesting in being involved in future playground revitalization in our community please contact me at or the HVCA at
