2009 – 2016 Joint-Use Facility
In 2009 the City of Calgary Parks and The Calgary Lawn Bowling Club started looking to relocate the club. This lead to discussions surrounding the idea of a joint-use building. The Board of your Spruce Cliff Community Association was involved in all meetings with the Bow Cliff Seniors, Calgary Lawn Bowling Club and the City regarding the new community building.
Detailed building design discussions started on December 18, 2013. The Spruce Cliff Community Open House was held on April 2, 2014 to present the new site concept. The building permit was approved in October of 2014. On May 27, 2016 years of discussion, planning and working together as a community, culminated in the grand opening of the Joint-Use Facility.
2014 Boulevard Trees
Ever wonder how the City decides in what neighbourhoods to plant trees? The Spruce Cliff Community Association submitted a successful grant application to the Cities 2014 Inspiring Strong Neighbourhood Project.
2013 – 2014 Parking Lot
The parking lot is part of the community park space and is attached to the lands to the south. The redevelopment was officially a Bow Cliff Seniors and City of Calgary project as lease holder and owner of the community centre at that time and were in a better position, as a registered charity, to fund raise. A very positive outcome from the tough decision the SCCA made to give up the building head lease.
The parking lot development permit was obtain in December 2013 and construction started in July 2014.
2011 – 2012 New Sports Court and Joint-Use Facility
Project grant applications for funding from Calgary Parks Foundation started in 2011. Conversion to the sports courts surfaces proceeded first in 2012 with the addition of more benches and picnic tables. After experiencing delays due to the major facelift to the parking lot and construction of the new joint-use building, upgrades to the area landscaping and fencing were completed in 2016.
2010 – 2011 – Playground
Discussions for a replacement of an aged structure on the site started in 2010; that lead to this valued, highly used community amenity.
The new structure and surfaces were installed in June 2011 with funding partners from Boardwalk for density modifications on their new building, and a grant from the Calgary Parks Foundation.
