Construction has started on a new residents’ amenities building in the community of Harmony, the first lake community in Springbank, just west of Calgary.
The South Beach Building will be located at the east entrance to the South Beach in the community and will be home to change rooms, washrooms, outdoor showers, guest entry kiosk and bike racks.
“The South Beach Building is the first Owners’ Association facility to be constructed in Harmony,” says Vanessa Jollimore, administrator for the Owners’ Association of Harmony. “It will be an amazing addition to the beach experience for residents and their guests next summer.”
Also under construction is Harmony’s Adventure Park, which will complement the future Beach Club and will be constructed over three years. Phase one of the park is expected to be ready for the residents to use this winter.
The first of what is hoped to be three sunshades in the Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park is now being enjoyed by park visitors.
The sunshade was funded by The Great Trail (Trans Canada Trail) in honour of Alberta statesman and former premier Jim Prentice, who was known for his passionate support and interest in parks and conservation.
Designed and built by Capital Renovations, the shelter is meant to look like a traditional farmer’s lean-to with plenty of seating for a rest or picnic. The wide opening of the shelter was designed with wheelchairs and large strollers in mind. It’s located on the west side of the park along the Bowbend Trail.
