OUTDOOR ACTIVITY HUB
Due to declining use, in 2005 the CHPH Community Association did not renew the lease on the building located at 60 Patterson Blvd. SW and since that time has not had a building nor operated a hockey rink. The building, and the old hockey rink behind it, came under the operational control of Badminton Alberta who does not maintain the rink for skating.
Since 2018, the CHPH Community Association participated in the City of Calgary’s Adopt-a-Rink volunteer program, giving our community a place to be active and spend time with friends, family, and neighbours. Pre COVID, the CHPH also used the space to host several community skating parties, which were very well attended.
Our little rink’s popularity and success made it clear to the CHPH CA that our community is in much need of a permanent, all-season recreational hub. A place to be active, spend time outdoors, connect with neighbours, and build community spirit. This was the genesis of the Outdoor Activity Hub.
How can you help? We reached the half way mark on our fundraising goal and expect to break ground in 2023. But we can't do it without you! Your donations directly help fund the Hub and ensure that this gathering space will serve your family and all members of this community for years to come.
In the fall of 2020, the Coach Hill Patterson Heights Community Association Board of Directors approved the commencement of an Outdoor Activity Hub project for the community. After community engagement we prioritized a rink space, community gardens, a natural playground area, and lots of room for gathering such as . green space, seating areas, fire pits. This space can adapt as our community's needs change.
