Welcome to the
Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association!
Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association is a small group of volunteers who
meet regularly and work constantly to:
- tackle and fix residents’ concerns
- review and adjust development applications
- watch out for environmental concerns
- run children and community based programs
- provide insurance for supported sport and area usage activities
- communicate area and city issues to the residents
- represent the community to the outside world
- communicate with the Ward 1 and 2 Councillors, the Member of the Legislature of Alberta,
and with the Member of Parliament.
Please note that the City communicates overall area issues directly with the Community Association and does not necessarily recognize residents associations as the “voice” of the people.

Help Us Name our Community Park!
We are so excited that our community park is now open, and now that residents are using the park on a regular basis, we are asking for your help to name the park! We are reaching out to our community members, the people who made this park possible, to send in suggestions on what our park should be named. Send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 25th to be considered!
A brief background on how our community park came to be! The Rocky Ridge/ Royal Oak community has always been lacking in publicly accessible outdoor recreation amenities and quality park space. Between 2007 and 2015 the community association surveyed residents three times to obtain feedback on what people would like to see in the community.
A proper skating rink was consistently the top priority, however the concept for the park evolved to include a more diverse range of passive and active amenities appealing to a wider range of users of all ages. The park development is set to become a hub of activities focusing on health, social interaction and a much-needed venue for events when completed.
The park would not have happened if not for many community volunteers who devoted time and expertise. For many years the community association has put aside the money from casinos, relying entirely on volunteers offering to work long shifts. All of the planning, organizing, and management required to develop the park represents hundreds of hours contributed by community association board members and committees. Volunteers are the unsung heroes of making this major project a reality.
A special thanks to each and every person who worked to make this park a reality. We look forward to hearing your name suggestions for our community park!
