Rotary Athletic Park of Olds Virtual Soft Opening
After years of work to make the Rotary Athletic Park of Olds a reality, COVID-19 changed our reality and plans for a huge grand opening celebration came to a screeching halt. We still plan on a grand opening in 2021. For now, here is a virtual soft opening to thank everyone involved in the park.
The Rotary Athletic Park of Olds is now open for bookings on recreational reserve lands in northwest Olds - see map here. This is a multi-use regional facility accommodating athletic fields developed for soccer, baseball diamonds, horseshoe pits, a playground, and washroom facilities. The recreation site is well integrated with the surrounding community through a series of on-street and off-street pathways that provide direct connections to the site. Use is by scheduled bookings only.
Adapting to Community Growth
This type of facility meets community needs leading into the next quarter century, support activity, encourage an active healthy lifestyle, and be a part of the development growth of the community. The concept plans were developed through community consultations.
