Family Day at Southfork

Pipestone Flyer

For the fifth year in a row, Tamani Communities, the developer of Southfork, hosted its annual Southfork Family Day event on Saturday, June 14th. The growth of Southfork in the past five years has been steady and quick, going from 150 residences to over 600 and a population that is closing in on 2,000. This rapid growth has provided additional pressure on both the city and Tamani in providing services to the residents of Southfork. Recently it was announced that a K to 9 school would be built in the near future, and Tamani continues to build park space throughout the subdivision.

In fact, this year’s Family Day activities were held at the recently completed McKinley Park. Families had the opportunity to participate in a number of activities that included face painting, clowns and a bubble fun house for children. Meanwhile families were able to enjoy a meal and receive free movie passes while speaking to various builders regarding the development of Phase 7 of the subdivision. In total, when the subdivision is completed, there will be over 20 phases, which will eventually grow towards the QE Highway.

Some of the residents that have attended previous Family Day events were a bit disappointed in some of the changes to this year’s event. Most had enjoyed the plants that were available in previous held Family Day events as many were in the processes of developing their landscaping and the extra plant was a welcome addition to the landscaping project. Others showed disappointment in the lack of local suppliers, as the movie passes were not for Leduc’s local movie house and most vendors appeared to be from outside Leduc. Children did not seem to mind or care as they took full advantage of the Park’s many offerings and the activities available to them for their enjoyment.
