Northlands Park - Memories Worth Keeping
community events

Community Service

For over a century, Northlands Park has strived to positively impact the lives of people in Alberta. Part of its stated mission is to be a foremost provider of community service. Since the 1900s, it has partnered with Northern and Central Alberta groups such as children’s aid organizations and post-secondary learning institutions to fulfill this task.

Community service events produced by the organization have ranged from annual affairs to one-time collaborations. Monday Morning Magic and Rodeo Magic are two seasonal activities accompanying other large events that take place on the exhibition grounds, (Edmonton’s Klondike Days Exposition and the Canadian Finals Rodeo, respectively). Both of those community service activities focus on providing stimulating and unique entertainment to children with disabilities.

In a shared effort with the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, Northlands Park is also involved in offering a refreshing approach to classroom learning through the In Class Education (ICE) School. Over the years, Northlands Park also extended the breadth of its community activities to include financial contributions in support of making post-secondary education accessible. Through annual disbursements, Alberta students are awarded for their achievements.

The generous spirit of Northlands Park has assisted individuals, families, and organizations in thriving. As a result of the organization’s committed efforts, services to the community have been enhanced.
