Capital Improvement Grant Proposals

In November 2018 at the Festival of Neighbourhoods,Cherry Park Neighbourhood Association won one of the Capital Improvement Grants of $20,000.

After extension consultation we voted at our AGM on March 13th, 2019, to go ahead with the Outdoor exercise equipment as our Capital Improvement Grant project.  It was to be located along the Iron Horse Trail by Gildner Green Park.

Due to miscommunications between City departments, the Gildner Green Site became no longer viable in the spring of 2020.  After discussing several other sites, it was approved to move forward with having it along the new multi-use trail in Raddatz Park.

We now hope to have it installed early 2021.

Our first bake for 2021 will be Sunday, March 28th.  The fire will be lit at 1 PM and the oven should be ready for baking by 3 PM.  This bake will go ahead rain, snow, or shine.
If you plan to bake, please come by 3 PM.
We are always in need more people to lead baking sessions.  You would not be responsible for teaching baking, but caring for the fire to heat the oven and cleaning up afterwards.  In order to be trained you need to attend a baking session from the lighting of the fire until cleanup is finished (about 4 hours).
If you would like to be trained please contact us.

For those of you who don't know where the Oven is located - it is in the middle of Willow Green Extension Garden in the middle of Raddatz Park (which runs between Gage Avenue and Cherry Street).  It is not on a street, you will need to walk in from Cherry Street along the creek path that goes out the back of the Old Willow Green Garden or come in from Gage Avenue along the little path that leaves the Iron Horse Trail at Gage and follows the creek on the westside, not the new paved trail that goes along the eastside of the creek.
