 Pickleball in the Park?

Do you support converting the currently unused south tennis court in Strathcona Park into a pickleball court?
The court has been out of commission since last summer’s sink hole and previous to that being was used as a pop-up skate park. There are no pickleball courts in the area. It would be a great first step in revitalizing Strathcona Park.  Click here to support.

Air Quality Data Review

We will soon be getting our first batch of quarterly data from thStrathcona Area Air Quality Study that the SRA is doing in conjunction with the Port. We’re looking for a few volunteers (in particular, those with some experience interpreting air quality data) to review the data and meet to discuss sometime this summer.  If you’re interested, please contact us at AQProject@strathcona-residents.org

Do you know WordPress/Beaver Builder?

Several years ago, we did a major redesign of the SRA Website. But like all websites, it needs the occasional tweak or fix. Can you offer up some assistance? Promise that this is not a big commitment. Just some periodic help. A strong community depends on the talents of its members. Contact Dan at sra@strathcona-residents.org.
