Adaptive Sidewalk Painting

48th Avenue & North Haven Drive

The time has finally come. North Haven was awarded a grant by Activate YYC through the City of Calgary to complete a project that brings the community together while increasing walkability in the neighbourhood. 

We saw the oversized intersection at 48th Avenue & North Haven drive a bit daunting from a pedestrian scale, and sought to address this with some bright paint. Since applying for the grant, the city's policies have shifted – we have thus modified the planned area and will be working on a new pathway which should be completed by the end of September 2018.

Bring clothes you can get dirty in and lets roll out some beautiful artwork. (Artwork will be pre-selected prior to event)

Pizza will be provided to volunteers.

Second Annual Bike Fest

BikeHaven-2018.jpg

After a summer’s break from events (but certainly not from planning!) we are excited to kick off fall with our second annual BIKE HAVEN, Saturday September 15 from 9:30am-12:30pm!  Last year was a ton of fun, and we’re planning to build on that and make it even better this year!  Expect to see:  another chalk course for the younger set, some more obstacles on the grass for those ready to move up a level (or two!), and loads of time to ride your bike and have fun with friends!  This will be fun on any kind of bike – from striders to adult bikes!

This year, our concession will be serving Sahara Pizza by the slice, as well as drinks and snacks, from 11-12:30, while showing some awesome biking videos on the big screen at the hall to inspire you for future greatness!

 The event is free for NHCA members, and $2 per rider for non-members.  All riders must wear a helmet!  We will need a bunch of volunteers for this event, so keep an eye on our facebook page and the website, northhavenyyc.ca, for information on how to sign up to volunteer.
