The “Mother Goose Memorial Playground” was completed in May 2016. Members of the Community worked together to build a fantastic new play structure for the area. Using many volunteer hours, the former playground was torn down and recycled while the new structure was dismantled from its former home in Claresholm, Alberta. The new site for the playground was cleared out and its new tenant arrived in May, ready to be put together. During a very wet weekend in May, the community put up the structure. Named for Karen “Mother Goose” Lewko, the playground is a fantastic example of the might of the Community surrounding Castle Mountain.
Throughout the years, the CMCA has also purchased vital community tools like the AEDs found in the day lodge, recycling trailer, community stage for Huckleberry Fest as well as tables for community events. Funds rased by the Association have also been used to assist in the Master Development Plan which will affect the area for years to come.
CMCA also represents the community’s interests to local, provincial and federal governments.
