The communities of Charleswood, Collingwood and Triwood all belong to the Triwood community Association. The Triwood community association has the distinction of initiating many Calgary “firsts”. Triwood was the first community to build an arena, it was instrumental in bringing the sport of Ringette to Calgary, and it is home to the city’s first and only seniors slo pitch team. Ringette remains a big draw at eh community centre. The indoor and outdoor ice rinks are also used for hockey and figure skating and for lacrosse in the summer. The ball diamond is well maintained by the seniors’ slo-pitch team. The community centre is also home to Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, dog training, Thursday bingos, Seniors Tai Chi, preschool, and before and after school programs. The city also often puts on daycamps and teen drop in programs. Special events, such as a recent dinner theater series, are also common. The community association is also active in protecting nearby Nose Hill and is a member of the Nose Hill Park Management Advisory Committee.
