In collaboration with the City of Edmonton, Willowby Community League and Michael A. Kostek School, the Colonel F.C. Jamieson Playground Re- Development Committee is excited to embark on the re-development of the playground located at Michael A. Kostek School (MAK).
The City of Edmonton has assessed the current 24 year old playground located at MAK Elementary School to be in "fair" condition and that it is time to start the planning for a new playground.
The goal of the Committee is to replace the existing playground structure with new, innovative equipment and amenities that are accessible to a variety of users. The current playground footprint will be renewed with a focus on 3 main areas; Equipment, Surface and Outdoor Educational Space.
Our goal is to raise $638,000 by December 2019 in order to start construction in the summer of 2019 and open the new playground in celebration of the school’s 25th Anniversary.
A major role of the Playground Committee will be fundraising through various activities at the school, in the community, through grant applications and private donations. Monetary donations from individuals and companies will have a direct impact on our success. In order for the Committee to be successful and a new playground built, we need your help!
How can you help? You can participate in one of our fundraisers, buy a brick and leave your mark, in-kind donations, volunteer with the Committee or during one of our events or a monetary donation. Tax receipts will be given out for those that request one and have donated a over $20 .

We are a registered charity under the Federal Government and a non-profit under the Provincial Government since October 1, 1996. CRA registration number: 891792541 RR0001. .
