Sundance Community Background
Sundance is one of the most southerly communities in Calgary. It is bordered on the North and East by Fish Creek Park. Sundance was established as a community in 1982. Like Midnapore, Sundance is a lake community. Lake Sundance provides residents with numerous recreational opportunities. Midnapore and Sundance share a large community centre, which offers a variety of programs. These include out of school and preschool programs, Tae Kwan Do, drama, badminton, break dancing, and school dances. Regular town hall meetings are held in the centre, and special events such as Canada Day are marked by parties at one of the community lakes. Mid-Sun is also active in addressing concerns of the community. It represents community interests on the board of the new South Fish Creek Recreation Center. Mid-Sun has also established a volunteer Traffic and Development Committee to address traffic concerns in the area.
Sundance Community Association
50 Midpark Rise SE
The Mid-Sun Community Association was founded in 1977, and serves the 18,000+ people residing in the communities of Midnapore and Sundance, as well as other residents of south Calgary. The current facility was built in 1987; expansion plans are currently undergoing review. The Mid-Sun CA is a founding member of the South Fish Creek Recreation Complex, and a member of the Trico Family Leisure Centre. Representatives from the Mid-Sun CA sit on the governing boards of both of those organizations.
The Mid-Sun Community Association strives to offer accessible recreational programming, and a venue for fostering community spirit. The success of the Community Association is due to the efforts of a great many volunteers, and residents who support the association.
