Welcome to the South East Community Leagues Association (SECLA) website! SECLA is an area council consisting of eleven community leagues in central south east Edmonton ~ Avonmore, Capilano, Cloverdale, Forest/Terrace Heights, Fulton Place, Gold Bar, Holyrood, Idylwylde, Kenilworth, Ottewell and Strathearn. We are a not for profit organization registered under the Societies Act of Alberta.
As an area council we are committed to working for the benefit of our member community leagues and residents thereof, by providing meaningful service and support to our member leagues, strengthening community networks, and providing a forum for collaboration, discussion and the sharing of information.
The park survey was conducted in 2016 to build awareness in the community regarding this project and to gather feedback. The purpose of this summary report is to share the feedback received regarding the type of park amenities to be included, and possibly to garner additional feedback to facilitate concept development.
We have lots of exciting news to report!
We are very happy to announce that we have received approval for a major grant, which will allow work to begin on the outstanding elements from the previous phase of park development – this is primarily the construction of a parking lot. We are excited that we can now work with the City in terms of final plans for construction of those outstanding elements, with on-site work likely to begin in early 2018.
And now that we have the funds for the outstanding elements, we can get into planning for other features to include as phase 2 of development! As mentioned in previous updates, a community survey conducted in 2016 to ask local residents what features to include in this park. Survey results have been compiled and we have prepared a report that is available on our website for review or download.
We are still actively needing to fundraising for the park in order to move ahead with phase 2. While we do not have any fundraisers scheduled at this time, we are always looking for ideas and/ or people who would like to assist with this worthy cause.
We welcome donations of any amount. As mentioned previously, if you would like to make a donation to the park, donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt. You can contribute to this project through a personal or business donation. Cheques must be made payable to the City of Edmonton, and must reference the "Fulton Ravine South Park project" or the "SECLA park project".
A tax receipt will be mailed to you in time to file with your tax return.
Kenilworth Community League
I moved to south east Edmonton from Old Strathcona about a year and a half ago. To continue my long-running civic work, I sought out the local community league. I am now representing Kenilworth at SECLA.
What is SECLA, the South East Community Leagues Association? It’s an area council that includes eleven south east Edmonton community leagues. The organization’s primary activity is a monthly meeting of representatives from the member leagues. SECLA also hosts a casino every two years. In collaboration with Calder Publications, we produce ten issues per year of the South East Voice.
