100th Anniversary Project Overview 100th anniversary project

We started in 2011 with a vision to create something wonderful for our 2021 centennial anniversary.


We decided to build a lasting, tangible, capital project in honour of the volunteers and contributors of our community leagues.


We made a choice to develop an amenity in Hawrelak Park, one of Edmonton's largest and most central park spaces.

Happily, we are being generously supported.


Our member Leagues approved a five-year funding commitment from every League, totalling $314,000.


City council unanimously approved a motion to fund $600,000 in the 2015-2017 Capital Budget once the rest of our project funding is secured.


We are happy to announce that we received $500,000 from the Government of Alberta.

Community League Plaza


One hundred years of cherished community memories. One hundred years of friendships made and recreational activities enjoyed.

Celebrating who we are helps us to inspire and shape who we will be.

We want to inspire our future to create another 100 years of fun, caring community experiences.
