Community Programs

This is your invitation to participate in a wide variety of activities in and around your own community. Whether you are trying something new, or sharing your skills with others, these programs are a fun way to get active while getting to know individuals in your local community.

While some community programs may require a community league membership and/or a participation or registration fee, others only require your enthusiastic participation.


In addition to the list below, the City of Edmonton prepares several Program Guides. These guides list the recreation, community, and school programs offered by the City of Edmonton. Included on the Program Guide webpage are: Accessible and Low Cost or Free Recreation Guides - that are prepared seasonally.


Please contact the person in charge of the specific program to confirm current meeting locations, times and costs.
