MILLHURST COMMUNITY LEAGUE
Meyokumin ・ Sakaw
The Millhurst community comprises the neighbourhoods of Meyokumin and Sakaw in the south portion of Mill Woods bounded by 66 Street to the west, 50 Street to the east, 23 Avenue to the north and Anthony Henday Drive to the south.
The Millhurst Community League was formed in the fall of 1978 with only 150 homes. This number was expected to triple within two years and the residents realized that they needed to prepare for the traditional operations of a community league. It was incorporated on May 11th, 1979 and became the area’s fifth league. From the start, residents established the creation of playgrounds and recreation facilities as their first priority and these were established through volunteer efforts, fund raising and City of Edmonton grants. Millhurst Community League was also actively involved in the creation of the Mill Woods Cultural and Recreational Facility Association (MCARFA) and in fundraising on its behalf.
Millhurst Community League currently has an active board organizing community programs, family events, community garden, basketball courts, ice rinks and maintaining a small hall. Check out their website for complete details.
