Tuscany is a growing community of almost 20,000 residents. As the community nears completion, it is crucial that amenities be designed to attract & engage residents at every stage of life. To date, Tuscany offers an abundance of facilities geared to preschoolers and younger children. Aside from self-guided activities in Twelve Mile Coulee, however, there is nothing available for our youth and young adults. The Tuscany Community Association’s motto is: Growing a Safe, Healthy and Enjoyable Community. We are also members of Communities ChooseWell, an Alberta Recreation & Parks Association initiative. We believe in & support healthy eating, active living, and social well-being. We are working with the TMC Parent Association, the CBE, and the City of Calgary to build an Outdoor Fitness Area on public land located adjacent to the school grounds. This amenity will provide Tuscany youth a safe, free, community-based site for recreation & gathering, as well […]

The Tuscany Community Association is working with local residents to adjust to the new demands for parking that have arisen with the recent opening of the Tuscany LRT Station. Based on some of the questions we have received so far, we have compiled a list of common questions (and answers) for residents that may be wondering about parking issues near the LRT.
It’s that time of year to start daydreaming of springtime and getting outdoors! The Tuscany Community Garden is entering its fourth season and will be opening registration for its 38 garden plots from April 1 to 22nd. It’s pretty straightforward—all that is required is that you purchase/renew your Tuscany Community Association Membership, register online for a garden plot, and submit a rental fee of $35.00. Everything can be completed online at TuscanyCA.org/membership. We also appreciate it if gardeners can spend a few hours of volunteering over the course of the season to help with weeding and watering of the flower beds and trees. It’s a great opportunity to grow local in a pesticide-free environment, meet your neighbours, and teach your kids where food really comes from! For more information go to tuscanygarden.wordpress.com.

If you would like to volunteer to help make this event a success, we would love to have you! Please let us know at TuscanyCA.org/ContactUs.
TWELVE MILE COULEE SCHOOL OUTDOOR FITNESS AREA Twelve Mile Coulee School opened in September, 2012, and this new middle school currently has a population of 850 students Grades 4 – 9, with a capacity of 900. Although there are parks and playgrounds in the neighborhood, they are neither accessible during the school hours for students, nor were they designed with middle school aged children in mind. We are collaborating with the Calgary Board of Education, and the City of Calgary, to build this outdoor fitness area on joint use land on the school grounds. We have received tremendous support from Tuscany School Council and Tuscany Community Association for this project. Aside from offering an extension to the Physical Education program at TMC School, the outdoor fitness area will provide a reprieve from the children’s studies, a place to play and expend some energy during their breaks, as well as an […]
