Community League Swim
Community League Swim is available to members with a valid community league membership. Our community swim time and location is moving back to Mill Woods Recreation Centre, effective May 4. 2019.
Our community swim time is at Mill Woods Recreation Centre on Saturdays from 3:00 - 4:30 pm
A valid community league membership card must be shown to get access. Please note that children under age of eight years of age need to be within an arm's reach of a responsible adult. There is a 3:1 ratio for children under the age of eight. This means that each adult may only bring in up to three children under the age of eight & will need to remain within an arm's reach at all times.
To get a community league membership, sign up here.
City of Edmonton Drop-In Bike Safety Programs
The City of Edmonton hosting free, drop-in Bike Safety Program sessions at recreation centres across the city in May and June. Enjoy the cycling season with basic safety skills for participants on two or four wheels.
The goal of the Safe Parent program is to provide a network of police-screened, easily recognizable, safe homes for members of the community, especially children, to turn to in times of distress.
A Safe Parent home is offered as a refuge to anyone in trouble. Safe Parents offer help during dangerous or frightening circumstances. They can phone your family or the police or get you medical attention.
Safe Parent homes can be used if you:
- feel threatened when walking, jogging or cycling
- need medical assistance
- are lost or frightened
- are being followed or bothered by a stranger
- are bothered by a dog or other animal
Safe Parents are not expected to:
- provide food and drinks
- provide bathroom facilities
- provide transportation
- administer first aid
- leave their home to break up a fight
- actively engage a dangerous person
Anyone over the age of 18 may apply to be a Safe Parent. Applicants submit to a police information check and agree to display the Safe Parent sign when a registered Safe Parent is home and available to answer the door. Only those without criminal records will be given Safe Parent status.
