In the heart of The Hills at Charlesworth, with Edmonton’s skyline as a backdrop, a ribbon of ice winds through the community’s Sustainability Plaza,with solar lights cascading over it, surrounded by transplanted mature trees from the old Pioneer Meadows Golf Course. The ice ribbon is dramatically different from traditional community ice rinks, creating a multi sensory experience integrated into the community’s focal point: the Sustainability Plaza.
Complementing the ribbon are two repurposed sea can shelters where residents can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and lace up their skates. In the summertime, the ribbon can be used as a walking or running ribbon.
The use of the ice ribbon, operated and managed by the Homeowners’ Association between the months of October to April, is included in resident’s’ annual membership dues.
