Brawn Family Foundation Rotary Park


“A Park with Wellness at its Heart”

Brawn Family Foundation Rotary Park was designed to support youth and teen mental health recovery.

1 in 5 Canadian children will experience a diagnosable psychiatric concern in their youth. Research has proven there’s a direct link between nature and positive mental health which is why we are so excited to be partnering with the Brawn Family Foundation, Rotary, The City of Calgary, Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation to develop a park at The Summit: Marian & Jim Sinneave Centre for Youth Resilience. The center is located in the community of Hounsfield Heights/ Briar Hill.
