Big Plans for a Little Park – Albert Rec. Unit

Albert Recreational Unit, at the corner of Clarence Avenue and 13th Street, has been a little park in the Nutana and Varsity View neighbourhoods for over 70 years – starting as a paddling pool and then expanding with a surrounding park and playground.

While the park has served us well over these years – both as a neighbourhood destination on hot summer days and as a fun playground area – the park is beginning to show its age, especially in the style and condition of its playground.

A small ambitious neighbourhood group wants to change this. We want to update the park and playground equipment to give a boost to the park’s usage and its longevity.

These may be big plans for our little park, but we believe that the neighbourhood deserves and will support a great little park like this. Ideas and concepts are still being discussed, but in broad strokes the committee is focused on these goals:
– maintain the paddling pool and building
– increase the green space
– modernize some (or all) of the playground equipment
– make the park a safe and welcoming place for all in the neighbourhood

Our energetic group is meeting regularly and we look forward to sharing our ideas with the neighbourhood, both for community feedback and also to begin fundraising.

We welcome your comments and suggestions as we begin making our big plans, and trust you will help support our little park.

Help us make our little park a big success!
