Martindale Community Association
Calgary Martindale Community Association Office is located inside The Genesis Centre. Our community association is a place for neighbours to connect and get informed about what is going on in Martindale. It hosts a number of special event each year, including Stampede dinners, a silent auction and dance, kids’ movie nights and skate parties on the community skating rink. This rink doubles as a skateboard park in the summer, and local teen entrepreneurs have set up a snack shop nearby. To raise money for these projects the community holds fundraising casinos once every 18 months. Martindale enjoys a good relationship with the neighbouring communities of Falconridge and Castleridge. Thus, while the community does not offer any programming at this time, residents are welcome to take part in the extensive programs offered at these nearby communities.
