Forest Heights is one of Calgary’s most multicultural communities, so one of the challenges of its community association is to appeal to such a diverse group of people. The community offers jellybean dances, and hockey, and the facility is also used by a 50 plus club. Weekly bingos are also held. The community has a popular skating rink and baseball diamonds, and plans to add a horseshoe pit, new barbeques, a new skate shack, change room, concession and garage area. In addition to regular programs, each year the community hosts a Stampede breakfast.
