The Haysboro Community Hall was built back in the early 1960's, by a dedicated group of volunteers who saw the need to have a place to meet for social and recreational events.
Over the years the Haysboro Community Facilities have been evolving. We no longer have Squash Courts, but have a lovely extended Lounge area and Classroom.
Every five years the City of Calgary requires that the HCA does a 'Life Cycle Study' of the building and outside facilities. This study is done by an engineering firm and is the basis for facility maintenance and repairs that we can apply to the city for funding for.
The HCA also makes other improvements and upgrades to the building and amenities that are outside of the 'Life Cycle Study', but that the Board feels are necessary to increase value to renters and other users.

Rinks & Scoot Park
Thanks to the Canada 150 National Grant, we are able to look into widening the rink doors to allow for a quad tractor for rink clearing. Also to put in a larger storage shed and hopefully purchase rails and ramps to put together a new Scoot Park for summer fun!!
As part of the Life Cycle Report the building envelope - all of the siding, which the birds enjoy burrowing into, needs replacing.
The City has come and investigated the building and are currently working on three plans as to what the 'elevation' could look like.
After the plans are approved, it will go out to tender and hopefully the re-cladding will start in the Spring.
