The Rotary Club of Calgary has been involved with the Calgary Rotary Challenger Park since its inception in the late 1990s. The Rotary Club of Calgary has three members serving on the Board of Challenger Park (Past-President Doug MacDonald, Brian Guichon and David Holden) and several others who have served as Board members and Park leaders. These individuals are now recognized as Park Ambassadors (Lou MacEachern, Walter Haessel, and Don Ross).
The Rotary Club of Calgary has been making major donations to the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway for 5 years!
Thirteen Calgary Rotary clubs, the Rotary Club of Cochrane and Rotoract are sponsors along with Mattamy Homes, and have come together to fund the bulk of the project.
"The Greenway embodies Rotary's vision for a better future for Calgarians and the generations who follow. We are very proud to put our name to this community project." Eva Friesen, 2013-2014 President of the Rotary Club of Calgary, said in a press release.
The map of the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway includes information on access points and parking. There are six access points that give good starting points on the Greenway. Click on the access point to get parking locations and directions on how to get there. As the final areas of the Greenway are completed, more access points will be added.
Completion is expected in 2017. Check the pathway progress.
