Kensington Spray Deck
Summer number 2 with the spray deck proves we made a great choice to install this feature in our park – and as a bonus, we offer SHADE TREES which we hear is a great draw.
While we look forward to many years with the spray deck, it’s time to start thinking about playground revitalization – the wooden structures will need to be replaced in the future and we will once again need great volunteers and fund raisers for this project. Keep your eyes on the website and Facebook for when that time comes.
Community League Swims
One of the great advantages of being a Community League Member in Area One is the free swims.

Sunday: 4:15pm – 5:45pm
Wednesdays: 8am – 10am (Aquasize)
8804 132 Avenue
Saturdays: 3:45pm – 4:30pm
