A few short steps away are ball diamonds and soccer fields for your enjoyment. We have everything you need to plan your company BBQ, you community event, or even your wedding! The barn has a capacity of 115 people. This setting for your next function is very rustic. This barn was built in the early 1920’s and was refurbished in the late 70’s as a community centre. The barn is the last standing barn within the city limits of Calgary that is still usable. Its cedar walls encompass the most beautiful fireplace, which roars its warmth in the winter, and lends to a quiet comfort in the summer. The huge sliding glass doors opposite the fireplace open onto the outdoor patio and the green space. The ambiance is already there…all you need is you and your friends!
