We’re hoping to have a snowbank rink in Ellerslie Crossing Park this winter, but we need the community’s help to make it happen! We need about $6,000 to build and maintain the rink for the winter, so we’re having a bottle drive on Saturday, October 18, starting at 10:00 a.m. to help raise funds. More details will come soon, but right now we’re looking for volunteers to help out. We need people to pick up the bottles (a driver with a truck and a helper or two per vehicle) and people to sort/count at the bottle depot. Please contact Jenn Parsonage if you’re able to help out.
If you want to see a rink in our community this winter, PLEASE volunteer and spread the word! If we don’t get support from the community for this (both in volunteer hours and in donations), we won’t be able to provide this awesome benefit. Thanks for your support!

Bottle Drive for Charlesworth Park
There will also be a bottle drive for Charlesworth Park taking place at the Community Garage Sale. Please bring your empty bottles and cans to the event if you’d like to donate them to help upgrade the playground at Charlesworth Park. Construction on the playground is scheduled to begin this spring, and we would love to make it the best it can be!
It’s official!! After a couple years of hard work we have raised enough money to build the park next year! A huge thank you to Amarjeet Sohi for speaking to the developers of our neighbourhood on our behalf. When he told them we only had $37,500 left to raise, Cameron Developments donated an additional $7,500 (from their previous $10,000 donation) and MLC donated $30,000!!!
Please watch your mailboxes for our pamphlet that will give you an opportunity to donate to the park project. We are hoping to raise additional funds so we can install poured-in-place rubber in the park instead of the engineered wood fibre we are currently budgeted for. We appreciate your continued support and look forward too seeing you at the park! Remember, even if you donated last year you can donate again this year and get a new tax receipt for the next tax season. We will also total all of your donations so that your name can be displayed on the next level on the rock plaque.
I would like to take the time to recognize some of the businesses that have donated to our project:
- MLC Group: $30,000
- United Communities: $25,000
- Cameron Developments: $17,500
- Bedrock Homes/Carrington Communities: $10,000
- Landmark Homes: $2,000
- Jatec Electric: $2,000
- Homes by Avi: $1,000
- Mani Bagga: $500
