The Heritage Hills Community Association held their annual Open House at the park on Saturday, September 18th. Everyone enjoyed a sunny (and windy) afternoon with a couple of food trucks and free cupcakes! T
he HHCA directors wanted to meet some neighbours and promote the group’s work so far. We are wrapping up another successful season at the Community Garden and are looking for someone to take over the garden director’s position next year.
At long last we are starting to see some construction activity in phases 4B and 5B which will complete Stage 1 of Heritage Hills, and continue to liaise with the Town on planning and development in and around Heritage Hills.
Committed volunteers are always welcome to help us get new projects off the ground, plan events, and increase membership. Please visit the website Video Open House Page for this year’s videos and additional information about our community.
June 25th, we had our second invasion of food and treats to the neigbourhood. It was great timing with the last day of school being the same Friday. Another great turn out and plenty of great feed back, on the feast.
Thanks to Nikki Anguish of the Board and the others who helped out including Cynthia Nemeth for taking all the photos of the event posted here.

May 8, 2021.
Heritage Hills Community Association held a Clean-Up Day for the residents to help beautify our community.
Despite the cold and rainy morning a hardy core of H.H. residents took on the task of tidying up the neighbourhood. Bags, and gloves were supplied by the town and the disposal of bags was handled by the Cochrane Eco Centre.
HH Board members also took an active role in the clean-up and filled plenty of bags with trash. Some interesting items were found discarded around the neighbourhood, especially in the ravine. Some of the found items, included a hockey puck, vampire teeth, and a baseball bat.
Prizes were given out for the “best finds”!! Thanks to Nikki Anguish our Events Co-coordinator for organizing the event. We hope that everyone continues to “Clean-Up” the community all year long.
Heritage Hills residents were treated by a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny, Sunday Apr. 4th, 2021. Lucky neighbourhood children received a special Heritage Hills Community Association Easter Basket. Luckily the intrepid rabbit made quick work of the deliveries and finished before some blowing, snowy weather arrived. Thanks to Nikki Anguish, Jason Blanchette and Bill Yorke for their efforts to bring the Easter Bunny to the community.
Santa in the Park
We would like to thanks all of those who made last nights Santa in the Park event (Nov. 30, 2019) such a huge success. A big shout out to some 60 plus families about 175 people, who braved the cold and came out to enjoy some great hot chocolate Thanks to McDonalds and cookies/candy canes thanks to Stepper homes. None of this would have been possible without the igloo tent from Re/max on such a cold night some borrowed heaters and the generosity of our volunteers who pitched in with lights and chairs etc. We especially like to thank Matthew Shannon for all his hard work and for helping Nathan from Calgary Balloons to set up and tear down that tent in -20 weather. Of course, the stars of the evening were Mr. and Mrs. Claus who took the time out their busy schedule to come visit Heritage Hills for a couple of hours and make some dreams come true and even read a story to some very eager listers. It’s a great way to end a year of successful events for kids and families and we hope everyone had a great time! Happy Holidays!
