Summer 2024

Message from the Community League Board

The warmer weather has arrived, allowing us to get out of our houses and enjoy the outdoors right here in our community. We want to share some of the great outdoor spaces we have right in our own community. All of these spaces can be walked, wheeled or cycled to. Get out and enjoy the following:

  • Playground and spray deck at the community center

  • Playground at Woodcroft School/Language Centre

  • Coronation Park, featuring many paths and the Planetarium. Did you know the Planetarium is the central focal point of Coronation Park, and represents the crown jewel in the Queen’s sceptre? Aerial photos of the area show how the park’s pathways form an outline of a sceptre

  • Picnic sites at Coronation Park - sheltered picnic sites can be booked through the City of Edmonton. There are smaller non-sheltered sites with fire pits that do not have to be booked. Head over one day or evening and enjoy a picnic

  • The Community Centre rink converts into beach volleyball courts from spring through fall and is fun to watch

  • Several baseball diamonds and a cricket pitch to play on—gather your friends and family for a game; some require a booking

  • Soccer fields and outdoor basketball courts at
    St. Mark School and Woodcroft School/Language Centre

  • LOTS of green spaces - bring a blanket or chair, read a book, or visit

  • Sidewalks to walk or wheel around the neighbourhood

  • Access to the river valley by walking, wheeling, or cycling down Groat Road - remember to use the sidewalk for safety

We want to remind everyone when driving in our community to please drive slow and watch for children and adults crossing the roads.

Thank you for making Woodcroft a great community to live and play!
