Community Facts

Our Roots


Founded in 1957, to provide a skating facility for neighbourhood children, the Woodcroft Community League has always been a positive force in promoting active living.  The community league is located in Coronation Park, named in honour of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.  Today, the Woodcroft Community League flourishes with a playground, spray park, community hall, beach volleyball and an outdoor rink for public skating and shinny hockey.

Callout for Volunteers

Have you ever thought you might want to help out a BIT within our community but not sure who to contact or what help is needed? We can always use more people who can help out “a bit”. We need volunteers who can help with many different things and a variety of different time commitments.
