Name of creator
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.
Scope and content
This series consists of records created and collected by the Jasper Place Recreation Commission. It includes scrapbooks as well as administrative materials such as meeting minutes, correspondence with other organizations, staffing, and facility rentals and maintenance. The series also includes an event poster for the Jasper Place Sports Centre.
Immediate source of acquisition
Most of this series was transferred to the City of Edmonton Archives by the City of Edmonton Parks and Recreation Department in 1970. The certificates (file 153) were found in the Parks and Recreation - Facilities - Jasper Place Sports Centre clippings file and repatriated to RG-101 in 2016.
The photographs were assigned item numbers with the prefix EA-657.
