Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta I Gaylord Perry wins ninth for Indians Friday, 1, 1971 THE IttHBRIDGI HERALD 9 AND DISTRICT is to have a new When the Reds are hitting they're charging park! The idea came Into being at a meeting the Coaldale Fish and Game Association with W. D. Geldert, Jim McQuillan and Earl Foxall among the key instigators. That was more than three years ago. Initially, the undertaking was envisaged as a trout pond for Coaldale and district anglers. With the stocking of rainbow trout becoming such a success in in many other communities southern Alberta, why shouldn't Coaldale and district have its own? Even though the bulk of the project is still on paper it has grown considerably in size and purpose since it was originally conceived. The trout pond is now to form a part o( a 51- acre park. It is located along an old lake bottom one mile west and miles south of the Readymade School; or, two miles south, five miles east, 3'A miles south on the road leading south at the west end of Coaldale. The County of Lethbridge with its recreational board has now thrown its support behind the project. An earth dam has been completed. It's deepest spots are to be in the 20 to 22-foot range. The lake itselt is to take up some 25 acres of the total area. This is about one-third the size of Hender- son Lake in the city, with about 50 per cent more depth in the deepest areas. AT PRESENT a general plan is being prepared for the park by the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission. The department of agriculture is helping as an advisor on greenery and shelterbelts. There are to be individual and community camp kitchen set-ups, along with camping areas. The fed- eral government has allocated the project under the summer youth employment program. The project is near the main Chin Lake canal of the St. Mary River Irrigation Project. Gravelling and rip-rapping are required for the dam before water can be turned in. This is the first park set-up of its kind for Coal- dale since the old Women's Institute park fell by the wayside many years ago. At present, Coaldale is the largest town in Alberta that doesn't have its own park and camping facilities. For this reason alone, the new project deserves the full support of all residents of Coaldale and district. But, going outdoors is the fastest growing leisure type activity in North America today. There are scores of other irrigation water impoundments in the south country that already have Uie water and need only some greenery and shelterbelts. But, they haven't been developed either and residents have to travel many miles to find their outdoor enjoyment. It's guaranteed, the new project will be among the best used in Alberta if it ever becomes a reality.
