Petition bringing attention to the need of an outdoor sports court, rink

LETHBRIDGE, AB – Your signature is needed for an online petition that’s aiming to get an outdoor sports court and rink built in Lethbridge.

The proposed project has already been submitted by the City of Lethbridge Parks Department for consideration in the upcoming 2022-2031 Capital Improvement Program (CIP). If approved, the rink would be built on the greenspace along 28 Street North, at an estimated cost of $762,000.

One of the petition’s organizers, Dave Sehn, says this is an opportunity to create a real sense of community. “I know for parents, safety is a concern, so we don’t tend to send our kids out on the street as much anymore to go play with other kids. This provides a safer means for kids to go out and play. To me, that really is what community is all about, is getting together and playing.

You can sign the petition in support of the outdoor sports court and rink at lethbridgeodr.ca.

The City of Lethbridge is also accepting public feedback at getinvolvedlethbridge.ca until Apr. 28 to get a sense of what projects residents want to be included in the 2022-2031 CIP.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
