Message from Mayor Linda Osinchuk Spring is an exciting time of year. After a long, cold winter, we are all ready to get outside and get active. Enjoy the warmth and sunshine by going for a walk or riding your bike. With over 100 km of parkway trails in Strathcona County, it’s sure to be an adventure! Take some time this spring to show your community pride by participating in Pitch-In from April 23 to May 6. You can find more information and how to register on page 11 of this guide. Together we can keep Strathcona County clean and green for generations to come. As you read through the 2013 spring edition of the Recreation Guide, challenge yourself to try something new this season. There is truly something for everyone. 2013 also marks a year of celebration. Throughout 2013, we will be holding events to celebrate Strathcona County’s history, people and military, culminating with a grand event on August 24. Stay tuned for upcoming details on our celebrations – we have some big things planned! With a spirit of gratitude and celebration,

Linda Osinchuk, MAYOR STRATHCONA COUNTY

2013 ignites a year of celebration for Strathcona County. Our community is filled with a rich tapestry of people who have laid the foundation for the success we enjoy today. Truth, beauty and goodness pulse here. Celebrating history… There is a humble heartbeat that reminds us of the achievements of those who lived here before us. The First Nations people, fur traders, Métis, pioneers and farmers – their legacy is what grounds us, along with our children, in reality rather than artificiality. This year marks the 120th anniversary of the origin of Strathcona County as a municipality, when the North-West Territorial Legislature in 1893 declared Township Road 53, Range Road 22, West of the 4th Meridian (Clover Bar) as “Statute Labour and Fire District Number Two.” We are proud of our name, as it honours our namesake, Lord Strathcona. Celebrating people… We celebrate where we have come from. Our current value system was born largely of agricultural roots, where people put in an honest day’s work with a compassionate hand. Our passionate, creative and “can do” spirit has had a strong influence on the direction and success of our community. We celebrate the people who call Strathcona County home. Celebrating military… On August 24, 2013 we will celebrate our military heritage through a grand-scale Freedom of the City Ceremony and Parade to honour Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) for its valued service to the community. Strathcona County takes great pride in being in close proximity to the Command Headquarters. We are proud to honour all residents who have chosen to serve to defend our freedom.

Outdoors Parks

Dogs Unleashed Association

Dogs in Parks Where can I take my dog on a leash? Leashed dogs are allowed in most parks, however, requirements of the Dog Control Bylaw must be met:

• • • •

Dogs must wear a valid Strathcona County licence tag. Dogs must be on a leash no longer than eight metres. Dogs defined in the Dog Control Bylaw as Restricted or Vicious are subject to greater restrictions. The person holding the leash must be able to control the dog. Scoop it...it’s the law! Owners must pick up the dog’s defecation.

Don’t forget to bring a plastic bag along when you go out for a walk.

How can you tell if spring ice is safe?

Adopt-a-park

You can't!

Do you have a park, green space, or cul de sac island near your home that you would like to take care of? Would you like to beautify your community, meet your neighbours and enjoy the outdoors?

The way ice forms in the fall and winter affects the way it melts in spring. Ice may look thick enough to support your weight, but it may not be. Weight that was easily supported in the middle of winter crashes through the ice in the spring. The only way to protect yourself and your family is to stay off the ice.

Volunteer for Adopt a Park and help keep your neighbourhood looking great. Our Adopt-A-Park staff would love to hear how you would like to assist in keeping our parks neat and tidy. If you adopt a park, we will keep you informed of any changes that may occur in the area and how you could be involved. Remember that you must work with the Recreation, Parks & Culture department and need approval before you can plant, add to or change any public property. If you are interested in volunteering, please call Sheila Flint at 780-464-8496.

STAY SAFE Keep Off

The storm water ponds in Sherwood Park are part of our storm water management system. Please remember they were built for storm water management and stay off the ice at this time of year.

The first community garden in Strathcona County began 8 years ago and they are continuing to gain interest as people get more interested in knowing where their food is coming from, teaching children about gardening and fostering community 'togetherness'.

TIP: Exercising during pregnancy Watch your intensity during pregnancy. This is not the time to go for the burn or work until exhaustion. A good indicator is a talk test: if you can talk through your exercise, you're probably at an appropriate intensity. If it feels too difficult to talk, you're working too hard.

Lesson Descriptions

Red Cross Swim Kids Programs 6Y+ This 10-level program for school aged children helps swimmers develop all five swimming strokes (front and back crawl, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, and sidestroke). Swimmers actively learn how to be safe around the water, increase fitness and improve endurance through fun activities. Children are challenged to achieve personal bests in distance and time, which is a strong motivator through all 10 levels.
