To get people walking, playing and being neighbourly, Haysboro Community Association’s created an exciting Stroll or Roll Community Scavenger Hunt. Teams of two to six navigated the neighbourhood by foot or bike while completing various challenges – including finding landmarks, taking photos at different spots, finding legacy benches and checking in at local businesses. Around 60 people participated in this event, which was funded through a $650 microgrant from ActivateYYC. One couple even travelled over 10 kilometres on their bikes to complete challenges!
In their original application, Haysboro had also planned to paint a section of the pavement in their community. However, when the City of Calgary was approached about permits, the process unfortunately stalled because the areas that were going to be painted did not belong to neither the Roads or the Pathway/Parks department. In the end, Haysboro Community Association decided this could be a better spring or summer project.
