A Mount Pleasant Community Association (MPCA) membership is an excellent way to support your community. Calgary's rapid growth has made it harder to develop a sense of belonging and community. Join your MPCA, participate in community activities, and help to foster a small town feeling within our great, but big, city. The community hall, the Sportsplex and the community swimming pool are all located in the same area, forming a triangle around a popular playground. The Sportsplex offers figure skating, minor and adult hockey, pleasure skating, and floor hockey. The pool offers lessons, as well as open swim time and private rentals in the summer. The community hall is used by a parent and tot playgroup, a before and after school program, the Girl Guides, fitness and yoga classes, and a dance group, among other activities. In addition, the community hall also houses a kitchen for catered events, and features a projector and other facilities. Mount Pleasant also hosts numerous special events, such as a Stampede breakfast at the pool, and Day in the Park – our community summer festival in which we celebrate sunshine, good food, music, and neighbours of all ages unite. Other popular community events include: movie nights, weekly Friday night campfires, wine tastings, Easter and Christmas events, a community garage sale, and more. The community is currently also in the process of establishing a vibrant community garden, on the grounds of the North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre.
