Spotlight on Calgary's HOAs
The Livingston Homeowners Association (HOA), scheduled to open Spring 2020, will be a shining example of togetherness. Offering a professionally managed 30,000 sq ft lifestyle centre, every detail has been thoughtfully designed to provide options for your entire family to live, grow and thrive. Picture cooking classes in the community kitchen, birthday parties and wedding showers in the modern banquet space, a day of hockey on the NHL-sized rink (topped off with s’mores and hot chocolate around the fire pit) or playing for hours on end at the splash park.
There will be recreational programming for the whole family from parent/grandparent and tot classes all the way to bootcamps and tai chi. The aim is to offer educational and cognitive learning courses that will support our residents in all ways that define wellness.
In Cranston, the HOA is responsible for maintenance of many of the community features, including the entryways and boulevards, the 22,000 sq ft Century Hall facility and a 7.5 acre park. Century Hall boasts banquet halls, a gymnasium and multipurpose rooms used for a huge variety of recreational and fitness programs, day camps, workshops and events. Outdoors, depending on the season, you might find residents skating, enjoying the fire pit, playing shinny, shooting hoops or tobogganing on the well-maintained park amenities. The most well attended event annually is often the 3-on-3 hockey tournament. With an ice rink that features a chiller unit, even on those chinook days the ice will never let skaters down.
Residents are just as active in Auburn Bay—where an incredibly proud community base gets together around a steady schedule of events and programming. A few of the highlights include an annual 3-on-3 Hockey Tournament, Spring Clean Up and BBQ, Mother’s Day Event, Safety and Wellness Event, Auburn Rules Dueling Piano Bar, Father’s Day Event, Beach Party, Movie in the Park, End of Summer Fireworks Spectacular, Fishing Derby, Halloween Haunted House, Christmas Craft and Marketplace, Kid-preneur Market, but there’s too many more to name. The heart of it all is the impressive Auburn House, which sits in the midst of a 13-acre park and is the central hub for family-friendly activities both on and off the community 43-acre lake.
These are just a few of the many thriving HOAs in Brookfield Residential communities. Others are well-established in legacy communities such as McKenzie Lake and McKenzie Towne as well as Tuscany, and still more are planned or in development in new communities like Seton, Chinook Gate and Rowan Park. We love watching our communities – new and established – grow and evolve as the HOAs help bring the spirit of each community to life.
