The park is located behind the Diane Hamre Recreation Complex at 1780 Rudell Road. Although the ball diamond and tennis/pickle ball courts officially opened this past weekend, the skate board park opened in 2022.


YEE-HAW! Country Fest in Kendal

It’s that time of year again to show the Kendal Community Centre some love so they can keep the doors open. The community is invited to the second annual Kendal Country Fest on June 15, a fundraiser organized by local talent Mike Pollard.


Embracing community spirit

In today’s fast-paced, digitally connected yet often physically isolated world, the significance of community events such as neighbour days and local park celebrations cannot be overstated. These gatherings are more than just social occasions; they are vital for fostering a sense of belonging, enhancing social cohesion, and promoting overall well-being. As communities navigate the complexities of modern life, the simple act of coming together in shared spaces can have profound impacts on individual and collective health.

A benefit of community events is the opportunity they pro-vide for building and strengthening social connections. In many neighborhoods, particularly in urban areas, individuals may live side by side for years without knowing each other’s names. Neighbour Days offer a structured yet informal setting for residents to meet, interact, and form meaningful relationships. These connections can lead to a more supportive community where people look out for one another, creating a network of social ties that can be crucial in times of need.
