Symons Valley Park: A locally organized, community-driven project.
The Symons Valley Leisure & Amenities Society (SVLAS) is a non-profit organization responsible for the planning, building and eventual operating and programming of the future Symons Valley Park. SVLAS is incorporated under the Government of Alberta’s Societies Act.
Our mission is to create community-accessible, all-season outdoor recreation and leisure amenities for our four Symons Valley area communities east of Sarcee Trail—Kincora, Nolan Hill, Sage Hill and Sherwood. Once built, Symons Valley Park will be a publicly accessible recreation destination for the 21,000 area residents today, and the projected 33,700 residents once the communities are fully developed. Due to the intricate City of Calgary pathway and transit system, our community will also serve additional residents from the community of Evanston. Symons Valley Park will therefore be a key community asset for over 47,700 Calgarians.
Developing Symons Valley Park is estimated to cost $3 million. Sponsorship, community fundraising and government support will be needed to achieve our goal of building a recreation hub that will serve area residents for years to come. To realize this important initiative, we have planned to raise a minimum of $500,000 in 2022, with the remainder of the funding acquired through matching grants. This is an ambitious goal for a community project but is necessary to help meet the need for community-wide recreational amenities in the Symons Valley area.
