50 Year Anniversary
Making Memories since 1968!
Come celebrate BPHA’s 50th anniversary and commemorate this incredible achievement. Events include:
A 50th Anniversary Neighbourhood Festival, June 2, 1-5:00 pm at our Rec Centre (293 Shakespeare Drive). This event will kick off a season of celebration for our entire neighbourhood. Mayor Jaworsky and Councilor Henry will be in attendance; there will be food, entertainment and activities for the kids; loads of opportunities for residents to meet, swap stories and get involved with our 50th projects.
The unveiling of a Commemorative Stone and Plaque dedicated to the Wiebe Family. Abram Wiebe had the foresight to create this Homes Association, donating 2 lots of land and creating the Rec Centre. We are looking forward to properly acknowledging this amazing initiative!
A new sign for the rec centre site! An updated sign has been commissioned with Jukes Signs and installation is scheduled for mid- April. The old sign will be repurposed to make an artistically-designed towel rack near the change rooms.
- 50 Trees for 50 Years. In honour of our 50th anniversary, BPHA is providing 50 trees to Beechwood Park residents. To request a tree, please complete an order form (one per household on a first come, first serve basis). Forms and payment are due August 17, after which residents may order additional trees if any remain. Trees will be available for pickup at the recreation centre in September (date TBA).

If you have photos, stories or article clippings you wish to include in the history of the neighbourhood, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete this online questionnaire: BEECHWOOD PARK 50TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORY BOOK QUESTIONNAIRE.
