Earth Day community cleanup
Join the Town of Banff and Parks Canada for a community cleanup April 18 – 25. We’ll provide you with the necessary tools and an area to clean around your neighbourhood or in the national park. Household compost bins will also be available at the toolkit pick-up and drop-off. Register as an individual or as a group at banff.ca/Events. This cleanup is made possible with a grant from Trans Canada Trail.
Dog park closure
Effective Friday, April 8
The Recreation Grounds dog park is being closed to protect against damage to the new sod. The duration of the temporary closure will depend on weather, rate of drying, and re-establishment of ground cover. This short-term measure will help prolong the life of the grass and avoid unnecessary mud baths for our fury friends.
Display your work in the Homegrown Art Show
Each spring Banff Town Hall hosts the work of artists from throughout the Bow Valley. This art exhibition is aimed at helping young, new and emerging artists share and celebrate their work with the community. Deadline to register is April 11. To register, visit banff.ca/Homegrown
