Oh My Oakridge – Revitalizing our community greenspaces

After a group of local residents spent the last six months developing the concept of Oh MY Oakridge, it has become an official committee of the Oakridge Community Association, as of Nov. 16, 2021. Oh MY Oakridge has a goal to revitalize and connect all greenspaces in Oakridge to create a more desirable and livable neighbourhood. The committee aims to provide a range of local opportunities for residents to recreate and interact. The committee is presently focused on raising funds to develop a series of community engagement sessions throughout 2022, in an effort to create a 10-year master plan for the community’s greenspaces. For more information, email ohmyoakridge@gmail.com.

Cookie dough fundraiser to support greenspace initiative

In partnership with indeygo Fundraising, Oh My Oakridge has launched a cookie dough fundraiser, just in time for Christmas.
Choose from five different flavours and make cookies in 20 minutes. Each tub makes four to six dozen cookies.
Order deadline is Dec. 2nd, with an estimated delivery date of Dec. 15th.

Get your Christmas gifts wrapped for a good cause

Oh MY Oakridge, a committee of the Oakridge Community Association (OCA) that’s focused on redeveloping the greenspaces in our community, is hosting a gift-wrapping fundraiser the first two Saturdays in December.

On Saturday, Dec. 4th and Saturday, Dec. 12th, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on both days, you can bring your Christmas gifts and free yourself from the stress of wrapping. Wrapping will take place in the upstairs boardroom of the Oakridge Community Centre.

All funds will go towards the creation of a master plan for the redevelopment of Oakridge greenspaces.

Oakridge Walks

Oakridge Foodie Walk

Our community is blessed with a wide variety of restaurant choices, serving a broad range of food preferences. Our Foodie Walk takes you on a tour of some of the more popular places in Oakridge. As our community, and the city, sees lockdown ease and many of these places re-opening to in-room dining, we encourage you to get out and support local.  

Christmas Light Tour

As we head into December and the New Year, why not put on your walking boots and check out the many Christmas light displays on homes in Oakridge this year.

The community has certainly “lit up” as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. We were hard-pressed to choose between the many awesome light displays on our streets this year, but these five stood out as the “best.” Try out our walk and see if you agree.

Local Library Tour

The onset of November means colder days and longer nights, and it also signifies the unofficial start to winter in Calgary. And that means it’s time to find a good book or two to curl up beside a fire with. Fortunately, Oakridge has a variety of local libraries around the community to provide you with a variety of selections to choose from. So before the snow flies and the temperature drops, we encourage you to get out and do the “Local Library Loop” – a 2.5-kilometre tour of your community that will take you past five local libraries and ensure that you can find something to read this winter.
