Message from Mayor Linda Osinchuk Spring is a season filled with excitement and new opportunities. Everyone is bursting at the seams to get outdoors and be active! Our community always does a great job leading a physically active lifestyle, and I commend you for that. If you haven’t already explored our over 100 kilometres of parkway trail that winds its way through Sherwood Park, why not give it a try on one of your outdoor adventures. I’m very excited about the wide array of opportunities that this edition of the Recreation Guide presents. There is truly something for everyone. Whether you are looking to try out a first time pottery class, or if you are a new parent and are looking to register your child in swimming lessons, this guide features it all. If you are looking for a way to kick start fundraising efforts for a non-profit organization, team or charity of your choice, then rally your friends and sign-up for the Recreation for Life Walk/Run. I am very excited to be presenting the event this year, which takes place on Saturday, May 7. It is a tremendous opportunity to be active, while fundraising at the same time. Sign-up before April 17 to catch the early bird registration. On behalf of County Council, I wish you a healthy season. I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you in the Community. In the spirit of active living,

Linda Osinchuk, MAYOR

Outdoors Parks

Dogs in Parks Where can I take my dog on a leash? 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! The owner must pick up the dog's defecation. Don't forget to take a plastic bag along when you go out for a walk. Visit www.strathcona.ca/recreation or call Strathcona County Bylaw Services at 780-449-0170 for more information.

Are there places my dog can't go? Dogs are not permitted in the following areas: • playgrounds (meaning the sand or grass • tennis courts base beneath playground equipment) • spray decks • the Strathcona Wilderness Centre • floral gardens

Is there an off-leash area? You can exercise your dog off leash at the Regional Off-leash Site Drive 3 km south of Wye Road on Highway 21, turn west onto Township Road 522 and watch for off-leash area signs. The parking lot is on the south side of the road. Dogs in the off-leash area must be under control at all times - have your leash ready in case you need it.Your dog must be able to “come”,“sit” and “stay” on verbal command. Owners must clean up after their dogs.

What’s happening with the site development at the off-Leash park? The clean-up and removal of the dirt in the pond on the west side of the park was completed in fall 2009. The area was reseeded in 2010 and should be open for full use in 2011. The next stage of the park revitalization involves the enhancement of some of the trails in the area from the current dirt trails, to mulch and gravel trails. The perimeter gravel trail construction commenced in fall 2010 and is to be completed in spring 2011. The remaining trail work will be completed during the 2011 season. Once the trail enhancement is complete, benches, garbage cans and signage will be added to the site.

Dogs Unleashed Association Calling all dogs and their owners... Dogs Unleashed Association is a non-profit organization that has been formed for dog enthusiasts who enjoy allowing their dogs the opportunity to run and exercise in a safe and organized off leash area.

How can you tell if spring ice is safe?

Adopt-a-park

You can't!

Do you have a park or green space near your home that you are interested in improving or helping to maintain? Would you like to beautify your community, meet your neighbours and enjoy the outdoors! Volunteer for Adopt-A-Park and help keep the parks in your neighbourhood looking great!

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.

Our Adopt-A-Park staff will listen to your ideas on how the park can be improved, will keep you informed of the work we have planned for the park in your neighbourhood, and will talk with you about how you can help. Remember that you must work with the municipality and need to have approval before you can plant, add to or change any public property. If you are interested in volunteering, please call 780-464-8476.

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.

Introduction/Preschool

What should I wear to dance class?

Preschool

Wear comfortable clothing such as a t-shirt and sweat pants or leggings. Tights and bodysuit can be worn, but are not required. Soft-soled dance shoes are suggested (i.e. ballet or athletic slippers with leather soles). Tap dancers should have a hard-soled shoe. Tap shoes are not required, but do add to the fun of the class. Running shoes or bare feet are not suitable as they can stick to the floor and can cause a fall. Hair should be worn off your face. Please refrain from wearing jewelery to class.

This unique program is centered on dance, music and culture. Each class will end with a surprise. It could be dancing in bubbles or shaking up a rainbow parachute. The creativity of the performing arts is endless... just imagine.

What should I wear for a drama class or musical theatre class? Wear comfortable clothing such as a t-shirt and sweat pants or leggings. Indoor shoes or soft-soled dance shoes are suitable footwear. Hair should be worn off your face. Please refrain from wearing jewelery to class.

What type of shoes do I need for couples dance class? Soft-soled dance or dress shoes are recommended.

Program Notes

preschool

Strathcona County Recreation, Parks and Culture invites your child to our preschool programs. Your child will have fun, make friends, learn and grow. • We encourage you to register your child in an age appropriate program. This will increase their opportunity for success.

• Gym time is active time - appropriate foot wear works best for safety.

• It’s a great idea to label all of your child’s belongings - we get many duplicates.

• No matter the weather - we will be here!

• Sometimes it is hard to stop playing - a trip to the bathroom before class means uninterrupted play. Transitioning? Pull ups work too! • Need to know all the dates for your program? Check the guide on-line for your program specifically.

• Confirmation/pick up forms provide information to us - ensure you allow time on the first day to fill yours out. • Epi pens require further paperwork - Epi pens will remain with the child.

Contact : 780-464-2112

• Snack time is visiting time too. Encourage your child to choose one small healthy snack at home. Children in full day programs will require a lunch too. We encourage waste-free snacks/lunches! • Reduce your worries - dress your child in play clothes that are craft friendly.
