Past Projects

Girl Guide Camp Jubilee 

This 84 acre camp’s original playground was destroyed in 2013 by a flood.  The Cochrane Rotary Club was the first to take it under their wing with a major fundraising drive in 2019. It is now an up-to-date accessible playground that will bring hours of enjoyment for girl guides attending camps.

Cochrane Rotary Youth Talent Festival

For nearly three decades, the Cochrane Rotary Youth Talent Festival has given young artists a chance to gain and develop performance skills in a wide range of areas. We are proud to have helped provide a vehicle for young people to grow their skills and passion in music, dance, theatre and a whole lot more. A safe and educational environment to foster a love for the arts is what this festival is all about. 

Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation

Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park offers a wonderful opportunity to escape urban life and relax while gaining an education about history, local ecosystems and more. The Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation helps facilitate services and preserve the pristine environment of the park. Whether providing upgrades to infrastructure, developing tours or spearheading outreach or restoration initiatives, the GRPF is an integral contributor to this wonderful space. 

Spray Lake Family Skate

The Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre is an excellent recreational facility servicing the Cochrane area. The Family Skate provides a wonderful opportunity for those young and old to get some exercise and practice their skating skills, while sharing some quality time with friends and family. 

Royal Canadian Legion Cenotaph Project

No greater gift can be given than to sacrifice one’s life for the liberty and freedom of others. The Rotary Club of Cochrane is proud to work with the Royal Canadian Legion to honor our brave service men and women through upgrades to the Cenotaph. A bronze statue of a WW1 soldier, a new flagpole and walkway are among the initiatives planned for this project. 

The Rotary Mattamy Greenway Project

The Rotary Mattamy Greenway is a path encircling the city of Calgary. No less than 13 parks and 55 communities are linked through the Greenway, and walkers, runners, bikers and rollerbladers will find it an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors while exploring the corners of the city. The Cochrane Rotary were among the donors who helped see this project to fruition.
