The Wembley Community Society was formed and received society status in spring 2021. We are a group of parents/guardians, community members, and school administrator volunteers. Our mission is to revitalize and enhance community spaces and support the needs of our community. Our first project is to design, fundraise for, and install a new playground and play space at Wembley Elementary School (WES). WES was built in 1984, as was most of its current playground. WES provides services to over 190 children aged 3-10 years. Nearly half of the students are bussed in from County of Grande Prairie residences. The school yard is a frequent gathering place for families on weekends and after school hours. It is also used by Imagination Play and Learn Daycare year-round, as well as the Town of Wembley for its youth soccer program. Unfortunately, much of the playground equipment has deteriorated despite best efforts in maintaining it. Also, the student demographic has changed since the original play structure was installed.
The first phase of our project has a budget of $400,000 and will include the removal of the old equipment, installing the new equipment and new fill and safe fall zones. Our project supports the health, safety, accessibility, mental and social well-being of the youth in our community.
