Green Shack Shaker and More!

The Good  

Strathearn Community League will be hosting our 10th annual Green Shack Shaker June 27th, 4pm at Silver Heights Park. Free for the whole family GSS will feature live music, face painting, kids karaoke, 3 on 3 basketball, hula hoop instruction, BBQ, frozen treats, and more. Join us as we celebrate the last day of school and the first day of summer fun in the playground. All welcome.  


The Bad  

Strathearn will not be receiving a full Green Shack program for Silver Heights Park this year. According to standards of evaluation Strathearn did not qualify for programming in 2019. Silver Heights Park will be receiving two days a week of Pop Up Play as provided by the city. Those dates will be announced shortly. And surrounding communities such as Holyrood, Bonnie Doon and Idylwylde will have a full morning or afternoon Green Shack - Strathearn kids are welcome to attend.  

If you would like to see Green Shack programming restored to Silver Heights Park at the conclusion of 95 ave construction please forward your thoughts to for delivery to the city of Edmonton. Also, it is critically important that you fill out the Municipal Census either online or when contacted door to door. These calculations are partially used to determine recreation and other programming priorities.  


The Ugly  

With the closure of 95 avenue there is a greater opportunity for either a Street Party or Road Hockey Game (or something of your own creation) on streets abutting the construction. You would only have one end of your street to shut down. So let us help you put lipstick on this 95ave. closure pig - contact for information about the Neighbourhood Play Street organizing guide. Of course, this opportunity is available to anyone in the neighbourhood - the Strathearn Community League greatly encourages responsibly organized street party/road play endeavours.    


Green Shack Shaker could use your help - Volunteers needed 

We have a variety of positions available from 4pm onward, Thurs. June 27. Please contact if you are interested in helping out.
