After a decade of planning a new plaza has opened in Hawrelak Park.

It was spearheaded by the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues in celebration of its centennial year in 2021.

The $4.5 million project celebrates the rich history of community leagues in our city.

It features pillars that display principles and values of the leagues, a time capsule and artwork.
