President’s Message

 

Connaught Park Neighbourhood Association has been a part of your community for almost 75 years. We are a member of the O.C.C.N.A (Oshawa Council of Community Associations).  

Over the decades, the park has been home to many youth activities and various rental groups.

Connaught Park has facilitated recreational sports for the children of our neighbourhood for many years and has provided activities that range from assisting our students achieve their volunteer hours, youth dances, the early beginnings of the community watch programs and fun days at the park for our families.  Over the years the building has been rented out for weekly meetings of karate, homeschool groups and small budding churches in the city, and weekend rentals for weddings, birthday parties, family gatherings and Jack & Jill celebrations.

We would like to continue this neighbourhood legacy by continuing to provide our children with recreational sports and doing more in our community.  To do this however, we need your help. As a park volunteer your commitment will go unnoticed at times; but, involvement in the park helps to provide a valuable resource to our own neighbourhood and the youth of our amazing city.

 

The areas that need immediate support and new volunteers to share some of the work:

* Building Maintenance & Upkeep

* Sponsorship & Partnerships

* Community Awareness & City Liaison

* Summer Sport Representatives – NASC Soccer & NASC Softball

* Winter Sport Representatives – NASC Hockey

Please consider becoming a part of our small (yet amazing) committee and help us keep the park operational for the next generation.

The Connaught Park Committee meets once per month from September thru June – see our website calendar for days and times.

I’d like to thank all the current and past Park volunteers for their long-term contributions to keep our park active, with your help we have successfully kept the summer sport program active in our neighbourhood and provided cost conscious rental space to the residents of our city.

 

Let’s work together as a community and have a wonderful year.

Jeff Hill, Park President

 

 

Connaught Park Annual General Meeting – First Sunday in October  – 10:00am

 

Please consider giving some time to your community park – our volunteers are stretched fairly thin and juggle many jobs within the park to keep it operational, this gets more difficult each year without additional help.
