 Welcome to Woodcroft Community League!  

Founded in 1957, to provide a skating facility for neighbourhood children, the Woodcroft Community League has always been a positive force in promoting active living.  The community league is located in Coronation Park, named in honour of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.  Today, the Woodcroft Community League flourishes with a playground, spray park, community hall, and an outdoor rink for public skating and shinny hockey.  Check out our numerous community social activities and programs on the Events  and Programs  pages of this website.

In 2010 our Community League worked with Lehigh Cement to relocate their residential air monitoring station from the historic Queen Elizabeth Planetarium to the Woodcroft Hall.  In response to concerns raised by the local communities, this residential site was originally selected to provide representative data of air quality in a residential area following Lehigh Cement’s approval to convert primary fuel types from natural gas to coal.  This station monitors air quality in the area on a real-time basis for fine particulate matter (PM2.5), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SO2) as well as wind direction, wind speed and temperature.  Lehigh Cement also collects particulate matter samples every six days and analyzes the collected material for heavy metal content.  Data from this station is reported to Alberta Environment on a monthly basis and real-time data is also publically available.

Our continued partnership with the Woodcroft Community Playschool provides a preschool experience at the Woodcroft Hall for children ages 3 and 4 from September to May.  And we look forward to our new partnership with the Edmonton Musical Theatre Society.  Check out their website for information about this society and their programs.

Your ideas and input are valued!  If you would like to be a part of the planning for the immediate future of our community, come out to a Community League Board meeting on the third Monday of the month, 7:00 pm at the hall (13915-115 Ave).  If a meeting date falls on a holiday the rescheduled date can be found on our website calendar.

Why should I join the community league? 

  • Your community league represents the residents of the Woodcroft Community when dealing with the City of Edmonton and city organizations.  This is your opportunity to provide your input in the future direction of your community. The City of Edmonton will consult with the Community League on issues of zoning, neighbourhood development, changes in city program delivery and issues affecting the community. In order to represent you effectively, the Community League Board of Directors needs your input.
  • As a community league member, you may be entitled to discounted admission fees to various facilities throughout the city.

How do I make my opinions know to the Community League’s Board of Directors?

  • By attending the Annual General Meeting held each fall. If you are a community league member, you have an opportunity to help select the individuals who will represent your community on the Board of Directors.
  • By attending special meetings called to discuss specific issues that arise through the year.
  • By reading your quarterly newsletter and checking the website (www.woodcroftcl.org) for updated information between newsletters.
  • By contacting one of the board members listed on our website and the back of the quarterly newsletter.
  • By completing information gathering questionnaires and surveys used by the Community League to determine what is important to you.

Is there anything else I can do?

  • Take part in activities and programs offered by your Community League.
  • Lend a hand. “Many hands make light work” and give you and your family an opportunity to get to know your neighbours while having fun.

Come out and join us.  We look forward to getting to know you and your family.
