The community of Charlesworth is nestled between 34 Street and 66 Street, south of Anthony Henday Drive and north of Ellerslie Road. The community is new and still developing on the east side. We are lucky to have a long-established K-9 school in our community, Ellerslie Campus, beside our beautiful pond — one of two featured in our community.

The site for our new park is perfectly situated in the heart of our community on 3 Avenue SW at the base of 59 Street SW. Our community is young and many of our community members are young families. The park will give everyone a much-needed space in which to gather, meet and play, and will help support a healthy, active lifestyle for residents of all ages.

Our mission

To create a multi-use space that reflects neighbourhood ideals of community engagement — where neighbours become friends and communities become home.
