Crestwood Parkland Redevelopment News

Have you ever wondered why the Community League playground is so new but the rink and tennis courts on the other side… aren’t?  If so, you’ll be happy to know that Phase 3 of the Crestwood Parkland Redevelopment Project is now underway!

For those of you who don’t know the history: in 2014, the Community League developed a Master Plan for renewal of the league grounds.

  • Phase 1 was the new playground, complete in 2016.
  • Phase 2 was the fire pit, plaza and seating areas beside the playground, complete in 2017.
  • Phase 3 will be the renewal of the area between the Community League Hall and Curling Club which includes the outdoor rink, tennis courts and adjacent hard surface areas.

The Crestwood Parkland Redevelopment Committee is responsible for planning this project and we are in need of more members.  Please email cprc@cclboard.ca if you are would like more information about any of these roles:

  • Secretary
  • Communications Director
  • Fundraising Director
  • We are also looking for one or two students to join our committee. Anyone in Grade 7 and up who is interested in getting involved in the community and having input on this project are welcome.

Finally, as we start this process, we want to know what you think.  In the next little while, we will be asking you to complete a short survey of how you currently use this space and what activities you would like to see supported.  So stay tuned!

Edmonton Arts Council’s Festival in a Box Community Parade

The Edmonton Arts Council’s Festival in a Box Community Parade is coming to Parkview and Crestwood!

 Our parade will be on Saturday August 22, and will start at Parkview Community League.

We will meet at 1:45 near the Parkview community league, and start at 2pm.  We will parade around Parkview for 1 hour.  After a short break, we will start the second leg of our parade and head to Crestwood.  We hope to see lots of smiling faces as we parade through your neighbourhood.

 Want to join our parade?

We would love for you to join our parade! We have a special section to keep community members socially distanced from performers, and we will have enough room for you to walk in your family pods. Even though we are outside, many of our staff will be wearing masks, and we would love to see your favourite masks too.

 What to wear?

Anything you ‘d like.  Bright colors, a crazy hat, or old Halloween costume, just keep the weather in mind, and wear good shoes.

 Music and Sound

We will have a fantastic band called the National Emblem Society Orchestra leading our parade.  You are welcome to bring noisemakers of your own, but please nothing amplified, and all whistles must be blown under a mask. We also ask that you do not bring air horns, as that is our warning that a car is passing and we don’t want to get confused.

 What do I do with my hands?

Wave flags, twirl some ribbon, wave to neighbours. You can even bring bubbles, but only if you wave the bubble wand rather than blow!

Can I drive my tractor?

No, but  you can decorate a wagon, or a tricycle, or a bicycle, and ring a ding your bell with the band.  Cars will be on the road so we will need to be very careful. We will talk about traffic safety before each parade.

Our first leg of the parade will start at Parkview Community League, and end in the same place.

The second half of our parade will start after a 15 minute break, we think around 3:15. It will take us from Parkview community league to Crestwood community league.

Tennis Coordinator

We are super excited to announce that we have a new Tennis Coordinator – Shelley Stewart!

We have set aside the following times to be dedicated to them playing/practicing tennis on the Crestwood courts:
Tuesday morning 9-11am
Wednesday evening 6-8pm
Saturday morning 8-10am

Please make sure you have an active membership to any community league.

Valley West LRT Infrastructure Update

Good Afternoon,

 

EPCOR is responsible for relocating all the power, water and drainage utilities to avoid potential conflicts with the Valley Line West LRT infrastructure. This is the second stage of the Valley Line, an urban-style 27 km line that will operate between Mill Woods in southeast Edmonton and Lewis Farms in west Edmonton

 

While EPCOR is moving ahead with this project, timelines for this work are subject to change as we continue to navigate developments associated with COVID-19. We would like to reassure our customers that we have plans in place to manage disruptions or emergencies, and are committed to providing the services our communities count on. Protocols have been put in place for our employees while performing essential work to protect the health of our teams and our customers. We also request homeowners take precautionary measures by maintaining a safe, two-metre distance from our crews.

 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate us at 780-412-4200.

COVID19 Update

Hello Crestwood Community,

 

Creswtood Community League’s (CCL) top priority is to ensure our community is safe. Therefore, we have been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation. Today’s declared State of Emergency mandates that ALL COMMUNITY LEAGUE FACILITIES MUST BE CLOSED. This includes halls, rinks, playgrounds, sports courts/fields, and any other facility run by a Community League.

 

The following measures have now been implemented to support social distancing and adhere to State of Emergency protocols:

 

  • Hall Closure:
    The CCL Hall will be closed until further notice. At the moment, we do not know how long this closure will last. During the hall closure, we are undergoing a thorough cleaning to ensure the safety of the facility when we reopen.
    Regularly scheduled Classes have been suspended. For suspended programs, the League will reach out to participants to issue refunds. Due to volume, refunds may take some time to be processed. We ask for your patience as we try to issue them as quickly as possible. Private Hall Rentals have been cancelled. Individuals who have booked the hall will be contacted by the League to refund any advance rental payments made. No additional bookings will be accepted at this time.

 

  • Parkland Closure:
    All skating rinks and playgrounds are closed.

 

  • Community Engagement and Support for Crestwood:
    We continue to be so proud of our Crestwood Community. Several individuals have reached out to express their interest in supporting each other within the community during this trying time. For individuals who have self-isolated or are quarantined and require supports, please check out the CCL webpage www.crestwoodcommunityleague.ca in the next few days for a list of supports, contact information and other resources.

      • If you do not have access to the website you can call the Board President, Diana Steele, at (780) 918-4780 for more information. Please contact us if you are aware of someone who is vulnerable or has mobility issues. If you would like to be added to a volunteer communication list from the League, please email Diana at President@CCLBoard.ca.

 

  • Staying Connected:
    The League is exploring options for safe ways to get out (or stay in) and stay connected while adhering to social distancing principles like ravine walks or online presentations and workshops. Check out the CCL webpage, Twitter, Instagram or our Facebook Page. Let us know if there is something you would like to do or share with the community during this time. If you have an idea for an online workshop or presentation or if you would like to be involved connect with us!

The League is following the information provided by various federal and provincial health agencies and all levels of government and is committed to implementing appropriate measures as new information emerges.

 

Please stay safe!

-Diana
