Avonmore Community league

This community league had a quick rise from its inception in 1957 with a new hall being built for $13,800 at 78 Street and 73 Avenue, called the Avonmore Hall. In the 1970s more buildings started to get planned for, with the second structure being a sports complex, with construction ending in 1975. The league worked in partnership with the schools in King Edward Park and Avonmore to create a playground in the neighbourhood. The play area was at 73 Avenue and 79 Street and used over 200 different sized tires to construct. At the time it was a one-of-kind playground but was deemed unsafe in 2012 and dated too. Plans for a new playground commenced in 2012 and a new spray park and playground were finished in September 2014.
