Community Clean-up Day – June 1 from 10 to 1 pm
May 11, 2024

Join us in making a difference in our community with our community clean up! Our clean up event is open to all community members to come out and lend a hand. Together, we can make a positive impact on our neighborhood by cleaning up litter and debris in our neighbourhood parks and public spaces.

The best part is that pizza lunch will be provided to participants at Balfour Arena!

We will meet at the Balfour Arena parking lot at 10 am, then disperse to various locations throughout the neighbourhood to clean up those areas. We will then meet back up at Balfour Arena for lunch. 

Please email vp@whitmorepark.ca expressing interest in attending our cleanup event.

Waste collection bins will be located at Birchwood Park on Norris Road and in the Balfour Arena parking lot. Please note the signage on each bin to ensure that the correct materials go in the correct bin.

A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR OUTDOOR RINK SUPERVISORS !!!!
March 21, 2024

This 2023-24 skating season, our Whitmore Park Community Association arranged to have contracted supervision at our 2 outdoor rinks in Mike Badham Park on Grant Road. 

Our Community Association made an agreement with the City of Regina Parks and Recreation to ensure the warm-up shelter would be open for public use from December to March.

The supervisors provided Whitmore Park and surrounding communities with the advantage of having the warm-up shelter open and supervision provided during popular times for hockey and family skating. 

Our unusually mild winter temperatures caused a big delay in the development of skating ice at the boarded and non-boarded rinks, so we had to wait until early January to open up the warm-up shelter and commence supervision. 

There was lots of interest in using the facilities and our supervisors provided over 70 hours at the rinks until mid-March.

We applaud the generosity and wonderful community spirit of our supervisors that made it possible for our friends, children and neighbours to have fun at our local outdoor rinks.
