On July 7 and 8, 2017, Landscape Alberta and a group of local landscape companies worked to build a new park in Chestermere, AB, converting the skateboard park into a premiere park for the community to enjoy. The vision was to develop a park which would foster community engagement and be a landscaping showcase for the City.
The idea coincided with the establishment of the Reidbuilt Center for Community Leadership, which is intended to support local non-profit organizations. Recently Chestermere City Council and staff have agreed to support this project and re-allocated funding for much-needed irrigation and a more robust landscaping plan was developed. The park contains 81 trees, 415 potted plants, 354 cu yds of mulch and 40,000 sq ft of sod.
