As the community welcomes the warmer weather and prepares for enjoyable outdoor activities, including going to the beach on a hot summer day, the City of Chestermere is again taking steps to ensure the safety of all who want to enjoy Anniversary Park.

Again this season, the City will be implementing the same protocols that had been put in place for the 2020 summer and that worked well. These protocols were developed in collaboration with Alberta Health Services, and based as well on the Guideline document from the Province.

Protocols will be updated to align with the Province's 'Open for Summer Plan' if needed. 

Anniversary Park’s new restrictions will come into effect June 11 and include:

Capacity Limits: The limit is 615 people maximum in the park and only 115 on the beach area. 

Weekend & Holiday Admission Fees: The City will charge admission fees for non-residents Friday to Sunday and on statutory holidays.

Engage your neighbours and strengthen community connections with the Vitality Grant

Have you ever wanted to organize a neighbourhood clean-up, or create a free bike exchange program for some local kids, or even build a little free library for your community to share their favourite books? Now you can – by applying for a Vitality Grant!

“The City is offering a grant of up to $500 per project to support ideas from our residents that will help connect and engage their neighbourhoods and communities,” says Danielle Fermin, Manager of Community Support Services with the City.

The Vitality Grant application will be open until June 25, and is available to residents and community groups who wish to lead neighbourhood projects, community building projects, festivals or cultural/community events that are inclusive and engage Chestermere residents in active participation.

Community Banner Program:
A second initiative from the Chestermere Streetscape Committee invites residents to submit photos for a new set of banners that will be displayed in Anniversary Park. 

“The idea behind the project is community pride and participation,” says Bea Germain, Chair of the Chestermere Streetscape Committee. “The project is open to all residents, and we are encouraging people use these banners to tell the community what living in Chestermere means to them.”

Banners can feature photos and short text or quotes that illustrate the community’s favorite local activities, pets, family, hobbies, or even their best photos of Chestermere scenery.
