Administrative history

The Jasper Place Recreation Commission was created under Bylaw 348 by the Town of Jasper Place on April 3, 1961 with the express purpose of maintaining and overseeing the recreation programs and operations of the sports centre, swimming pools, and playgrounds under its jurisdiction.

The Recreation Commission was led by a superintendent with a supporting chairman position and assistant superintendent. The position for superintendent was filled by Jack Boddington from June 10, 1960 until amalgamation. After the Town of Jasper Place was annexed by the City of Edmonton on August 17, 1964, the Recreation Commission ceased its functions and was assumed into the larger Department of Parks and Recreation for the City.
