The McKernan ice rink is a very special place in the winter months and is 100% volunteer run!
Some years we are also able to set up a smaller snowbank rink for the little ones. Both rinks are open for shinny, broomball and public skating. Remember to get your membership and skate tags to use the rink. Rinks are located next to the hall at 78 Ave. and 113 St.
Our Pocket Park is located at the corner of 112 St. and University Ave. and forms an attractive spot to rest and watch the world go by. Neighbours from McKernan and Garneau plant, weed and water the park to keep it looking great. Volunteers and plant donations always appreciated.

In Fall 2019 the fine folks at Habitat Studio built and installed a new bench structure for us. Thank you very much for your contribution to our community!
McKernan Park, at 76 Ave and 112 St., features a playground, spray park, mini skate park and picnic gazebo. It's a focal point for neighbourhood kids, especially in the summer when playground programs take place.
Our community hall, the McKernan Community Centre, is the gathering point for community events, public and private. It also hosts a variety of recreational events, and is home to the McKernan Child Care Society and the Alberta AdaptAbilities society.
Charles Simmonds Park Renewal
Charles Simmonds Park lies at the west edge of McKernan, at 115 St. and 79 Ave. It has not been updated in many years and needs attention to make it a greater feature for residents in both communities. See more about our project here
