Fitness Equipment Installed
The TTHOA has recently installed eight fitness equipment pieces in the large nature park at 1885 Towne Centre Blvd for the use of its members. Please stop by the park after a long walk or jog to do various exercises: sit-ups, push-ups, chin-ups, bar climbing, jumping, step climbing, stretching, etc. The equipment is stationary, safe to use, and maintained by the TTHOA. In the future, we plan to make various enhancements to the area immediately adjacent to the fitness equipment to beautify the park.
Please ensure that any young children are supervised by an adult. The fitness equipment is designed for teenagers and adults. Please also instruct children who use the park not to climb the white fence that borders the park. The fence is vinyl and its cross boards are not secured with nails or screws (the boards fit into slots). Too much weight will cause the boards to snap and result in possible injury to the climber.
New Tot Lot Playground on Tanner Wynd
The TTHOA has recently purchased and installed a Tot Lot playground at 2026 Tanner Wynd designed for 2-5 year olds. This playground replaces the old playground originally installed by the developer Carma (now Brookfield). The new playground has significantly more play elements including a main playground structure with two slides, several climbing ladders, a crawl tube, a piano panel, and a theatre panel. There is also a memory and tic-tac-toe game, a playhouse, bouncing teeter, turtle spring rider, and sand lab separate from the main structure. This represents a significant improvement over the previous playground. We encourage all members of the TTHOA to make use of this facility funded by their membership fees.
Excessive Speeding and Loose Garbage
Your TTHOA Board of Directors has received numerous complaints recently to do with excessive speeding, careless driving, unsightly yards and loose garbage in the alleys. With the partnership, participation and support of the PROPERTY OWNERS our Board of Directors' jobs are more easily accomplished. Following are some suggested steps for action:
1 : SPEEDING, CARELESS DRIVING, RUNNING STOP SIGNS, etc. - The Edmonton Police Service has told the Board that in order to obtain an enforcement presence in areas we believe require it most, they need to hear from us (a lot). Their number is 780-423-4567. Please call.
2 : LOOSE GARBAGE IN THE ALLEYS - Perhaps many of us homeowners have had wind topple our garbage containers at some time during a storm. It happens and we clean up the mess left behind. Unfortunately when garbage bags (with food remains) are put out to soon prior collection day it does attract hungry scavengers who will make our lanes messy. Waste management bylaw 13777 can affect a fine of $250. If talking with your neighbor doesn't solve the problem, check the City of Edmonton waste management link for assistance.
