KCL Dog Park

Kenilworth Off Leash Dog Park opened May 1st in the fenced in rink area.

9 am – 9 pm daily- managed by a great group of KCL volunteers.

The signs are up, the second fence is up, and the garbage bin is in place.  We just need responsible owners and dogs to enjoy the area. Please use the dog park responsibility by cleaning up after your dog and using the garbage cans for doggie bags.  Thank you to Robin and Jo for opening and closing the dog area this week.  NOTE: the gate system is a bit different this year.  It requires a person to lift it and pull it open. Not to worry as it is light weight.  Have questions/ concerns, text Irene: 7806952009

Users must maintain 2 metres physical distance from others and comply with Alberta Health gathering restrictions and perform hand hygiene before and after use.

Maximum 10 occupants until AHS standards change.

For more information or to volunteer to help lock and unlock the rink, please contact Irene at:   [email protected]

Edmonton Area Girl Guide Hike for Plenty

The Girl Guide Hike for Plenty is an annual event in Edmonton and surrounding area that collects donations for the Food Bank. This is the 23rd year of the event and usually occurred in March or April. The Food Bank appreciated this event every year as it was the bridge between Christmas Food Drives and the Heritage Festival Food Drive.

Unfortunately Girl Guides has gone virtual and all Girl Guide events have to be cancelled including the Hike for Plenty.

In these difficult times more and more people are needing food assistance, so if you would like to still donate, please take your donation to No Frills at Ottewell or to Safeway. Your caring and generosity is greatly appreciated.

Upcoming Event – Big Bin in June. More details to come.
