Community Spaces

Co-op Community Spaces was developed to help protect, beautify, and improve spaces across Western Canada. In keeping with their ongoing commitment to invest in the communities they serve, Co-op will contribute up to $2 million to help support projects that improve the places Canadians meet, play, learn and share. 

Over 1000 entries were submitted and narrowed down to just 27 recipients. Sherwood Co-op is lucky enough to have two of our communities selected! 

Southey Parks Improvement Project - Lion's Park in Southey will undergo a huge renovation including a rename to "Co-op Community Park". They received $40,000 to go towards re-landscaping, a new gazebo, updated bathrooms, fire pit/picnic areas and so much more!  There will also be a new play structure built to complete the park. 

Indian Head Skate Park - Indian Head skate park committee received $55,000 towards the creation of their skate park. This was the final amount needed in their $170,000 fundraising journey. The "Co-op Community Skate Park" is set to begin construction in September 2017.  

We are very proud of these two communities for coming together to create community spaces for children of all ages to enjoy!
