Chinook Park Community Association
1015-73 Ave SW
CKE Community Association will strive to build a community which nurtures belonging and motivates its residents to become involved: fostering a proud, safe, energetic, inclusive and connected community. The area’s community centre, located next to Henry Wise Wood High School, hosts a variety of programs, including yoga, karate, highland dancing, wood carving, hockey, soccer and tennis. The centre’s adjacent ice rinks are popular, and they are paved so they can be enjoyed by inline skaters in the summer. Basketball nets have also been installed. There are also a number of special events held in the area each year, including the annual Halloween party, a skating party, and an evening dinner and dance. Aside from putting on programs and events, the community association also acts as an advocate for residents, notably regarding traffic issues.
