Sport court concept
We're embarking on the next big dream to raise $150,000 by September 15 to begin groundwork on a multi-use sport court this fall and have it completed by spring 2020. As of August 12, we've raised $46,500. Your gift today can make a difference.
A Chilly Day . . .
On a chilly day in Waskesiu this month, we saw tons of kids, families, and visitors looking for the perfect activity to do together. It’s challenging on non-beach days to keep restless kids busy outside so they can burn off some energy. Luckily, a new mini golf course near the corner of Montreal Drive provides an amazing opportunity for families to play together outside, and it’s donors like you who made that happen. But there’s still a big piece of Waskesiu’s recreation puzzle to be completed, and we need your support today to build on that dream.
The recreation property is waiting to welcome the next big thing: the multi-use sport court. Playing in the fresh air surrounded by trees and nature just breathes summer. With your help, our target is to provide a space for people of all ages and fitness levels to share a pick-up game or a more competitive game of basketball, volleyball, soccer, floor hockey, dodgeball, or shuffleboard in the great outdoors.
This summer, we’re working with the Waskesiu Recreation Association to raise $150,000 by September 15 so we can begin the groundwork for the new sport court this fall. With funds in place, installation of the sport court would start in spring on part of the lawn bowling green.
Speaking of lawn bowling, the sport court is part of a Master Plan to complete renewal of the recreation property’s landscaping, pathways, lawn bowling, and picnic facilities. Help us raise these funds, and watch it all come together in 2020!
