We’re bringing more active outdoor play to our neighbourhood! For more information on our “loose parts play pop up event”, email play@shawneeevergreen.ca to receive our SECA PLAYS e-newsletter and be sure to join the @SECAplays Facebook Group.

  • Saturday September 14 9 AM to 2 PM – Community Cleanup at South Gate Alliance Church

Used construction material, garden waste, metal and electronic recyclables, etc. will all be accepted. Bikes in ridable condition will be welcomed as well as reusable items for donation to the Salvation Army. Unfortunately, paper shredding will not be available this year due to the introduction of an excessive fee for this service. Volunteers are needed to help direct traffic, assist in unloading, etc. Please contact Liala at (403) 532-2981. Your help will be appreciated!

Community Led Initiatives

SECA is keen to be responsive to your needs. Bringing an idea to life just takes a community member or two to come forward to assist us. We’ll provide lots of support.

Some of the ideas that emerged at the March Neighbour Night included:

  • Meet Ups for runners, walkers, dog walkers
  • Gardeners meet up, workshop or a speaker series
  • Yoga in the park
  • Biking workshop – Get riding your bike comfortably and confidently!
    • for kids
    • for women
  • SECA Summer Festival or community BBQ
  • Loose parts play program or a play group – because it’s more fun when there are more kids at the park

Please email vp@shawneeevergreen.ca to express your interest in seeing any of these ideas implemented or to suggest your own ideas.
