Multi Cultural Spray Park



Psst! Do we have an interesting thing for you to sponsor!
It's a spray park/water park/splash pad, and this one will Rock Your World!




This spray park will be All Inclusive: Multi-Cultural, Multi-Racial, Wheelchair Friendly, and No Socio-Economic Limits .

This spray park will be built in the village of Glenwood. We are located in the southwest corner of Alberta.

Some of the things to take note about this spray park that will set it apart from most if not all others are: It will serve not only our village, but also the Blood Indian Reservation, at least 5 different Hutterite colonies, and is the only one within a 80 km vicinity.

Glenwood shares a common boundary with the largest Indian Reservation in Canada. These children do not have anything even remotely like this to play in. Their best option is to walk to the river or the irrigation canal and play there. These pose many hazards that a spray park would eliminate.

We also live within close proximity to five different Hutterite colonies. Now those of you who are familiar with the Hutterite religion know that they're very conservative, however, this spray park will be attractive to them because they can use it while they are fully clothed. This will allow their children to enjoy summer fun with the rest of us.

It is completely wheelchair accessible, which is extremely vital as we have children in our area that will benefit from this. The whole park is ground level so that all children will have access to all of the equipment and find enjoyment as they play.

And last, but not least, there won't be a membership fee or any financial restrictions placed on this play area. That means that all of our kids, no matter their race, religion, physical abilities or financial status will be welcome to enjoy this beautiful facility.

Now here's where we hope you will become our solution: Have you ever wished that you were rich enough to be a philanthropist? Well you are.

Although we are a small, our spray park will serve over 1000 children from our village and the surrounding areas.

We have little to no corporations to approach for support. That's where you come in.

We are desperately hoping that you will find it in your heart to sponsor our kids. Will you please make it possible for us to build a safe area for these kids to get outside and play? Our kids mean the world to us and we'd like to see them out in the summer sunshine instead of in front of a t.v. or computer screen.

You can donate on this site, or even better yet, send your donation via e-transfer to [email redacted] This site charges a 10% service fee and e-transfers are free.

Thank you in advance, and with our whole heart for your generous support of our spray park. See you at the park!

Please note that ALL funds donated will go into an account for Glenwood ACTS (Glenwood Active Children Today Society) The site does not allow us to place our society's name there-it insists that it belong to a personal name for transparency.
