WE DID IT!!!!!
Co-op Community Spaces was launched in 2015, in its 9 years $12.5 million has been allocated to 175 projects across Western Canada. The program aims to help protect, beautify and improve spaces across Western Canada that relate to recreation, urban agriculture and environmental conservation. This year, 934 applications were received, and the Katepwa Lake Trans Canada Trail “Hub” project is one of 15 selected to receive funding. We couldn’t be prouder and will receive a cheque in the amount of $60,000. Please take a look at the attached pictures to give you a visual of what we have planned.
Katepwa has a proud history of developing first class recreational amenities. Two golf courses, playgrounds, basketball, tennis and pickleball, disc golf, the Lions Park, nature trails and more with the future additions to Breese Park. Oh, and of course, the Katepwa Lake Trans Canada Trail! The Trail provides access to all recreational areas along the full length of the lake. The “Hub” will provide a meeting point for residents and visitors to discover all that the District of Katepwa has to offer on a detailed Trail Map and a place for educational and celebratory events to occur.
We are extremely grateful to the Western Canada Federated Co-op and especially thankful for the support of our local Prairie Co-op Terry Vanmackelberg, General Manager and Kim Wihak, Marketing Specialist. You will be able to meet them at coming events so be sure to show them our appreciation!
