Rosemont Community Association
Rosemont’s community association offers a variety of programs to residents. The computer access program, which works to ensure all Calgarians have access to the computers, was a hit among seniors and teens alike. The community centre now contains a six computer lab to ensure residents have internet access. Other community centre activities and user groups include Tai Chi, Brownies, a Moms and Tots program, a Girls Art Day Camp, and the Rocky Mountain Ramblers. The community also hosts special events such as movie nights, pub nights and seasonal parties. This year, they will also be hosting their first community garage sale. Rosemont also works to improve the community, and are currently working on two special projects: improving the condition of the Confederation Park Duck Pond and creating a memorial garden as a tribute to former alderman Eric Masgrave, a key figure in the park’s creation.
