Outdoor amenities are available for the exclusive use of Crestmont Residents
Your HOA has been working hard in coordination with AHS to push for a partial season with the Spray Park up and running.
Alberta Health has given the green light, and the Spray Park is up and running! The Spray Park will be up open 7 days/week from 10:00am-9:00pm (weather permitting).
There are changes to how the Spray Park can operate this season that AHS has mandated, and we’ve worked alongside them to carefully consider the following plan:
The Hall washrooms/change rooms will not be open to the public. Sorry for any inconvenience.
The Spray Park will have a Sign in Table where Picture ID is required – to confirm you are a Crestmont Resident, and to keep a record of who has used the facility.
There is a fence around the Spray Park to control the entry point, along with having people sign in. This fence does restrict some of the seating spaces on the grass areas. As benches are sparse and “use at your own risk” in regards to COVID-19, we recommend bringing lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.
DO NOT COME if you are feeling unwell, show any symptom of COVID 19 and let’s make the most of this short season!
Tot Lot and Park
The tot lot located on HOA property next to the spray park and hall is owned and operated by the HOA and is not maintained by the City of Calgary Parks department. Private parks do, however, require adherence to all rules and regulations set out by Alberta Health and Safety.
Alberta Health and Safety performs regular spot checks of the play equipment and it is the responsibility of the Property Manager to report to the HOA any concerns raised about the equipment.
Repairs and maintenance are to be authorized by the Board and completed as required.
The play equipment was manufactured by Blue Imp Recreational Products of Canada.
The landscape design of the HOA property was created by Bassett & Associates Landscape Architecture Inc.
The pour-in-place rubber play surface installed in the tot lot in 2012. The work was carried out by GPI Outdoor Designs Inc.
Landscaping of the privately owned park and snow removal around the hall has been maintained by Harco Developments Inc. since 2013.
The land surrounding the pond and the adjacent field between the storm pond and the hall are owned and maintained by the City of Calgary. The field is designed to be a “mini soccer pitch”, as per City of Calgary Parks specification.
A community fire pit has been installed on the Crestmont Hall property next to the spray park and tot lot for the enjoyment of Crestmont Homeowners’ Association members, in good standing, and their guests.
The fire pit has a locking cover to prevent unsupervised use. Upon signing this Booking Request, and Waiver Release Form – the Events Coordinator will confirm your booking. The firepit will be unlocked prior to your event, and a photo will be taken of the condition of the firepit.
Those using the fire pit are required to clean-up the pit and surrounding area after each use so that no debris is left. Failure to do so will result in cleaning charges, at your expense. You are responsible for any fire, smoke or odors crested from open burning and for any damages that may result from your fire.
Storm Pond Fountain
The storm water retention pond located adjacent to the HOA property is owned by the City of Calgary; the area is zoned as a Public Utility Lot (PUL).
This pond serves as part of the master storm water management system within the community. The decorative fountain within the pond is owned and maintained by the HOA under an Optional Amenity Agreement with the City of Calgary. This fountain does not contribute to the operation of the storm water pond system nor does it control mosquito breeding population; it was installed solely as an aesthetic feature for the community at large.
The fountain installed in 2013 was manufactured by Otterbine Barebo Inc. and was supplied and installed by Renewable Power & Electric.
It is not safe to swim in a storm water retention pond.
