Phase 3 Update!

Crestwood Community Survey

Exciting things are coming and we need your help! A pre-design survey for Phase 3 of Crestwood Park Redevelopment is now live and waiting for you. Visit the link below to participate. Survey closes November 4 so don’t wait!

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.
