November 27, 1944 Bylaw 1069 was passed, establishing the Recreation Commission. The Commission had nine members: two from Council, one Public and one Separate School Board member, and five other sports minded citizens, all to serve two year terms. Their purpose was to advise Council and anyone else hired by the City to deal with issues relating to recreation. The Commission also promoted and maintained all civic recreational facilities. Programming included sports, dancing, music and dramatics. The Commission was not responsible for municipal golf courses, swimming pools, or property or projects under the purview of the Edmonton Exhibition Board or the Edmonton Boxing and Wrestling Commission.
The Recreation Commission acted in an advisory capacity to the civic administration in all matters affecting the development, maintenance, extension and use of all recreation grounds owned or controlled by the City.
On January 14, 1957 Bylaw 1804 was passed, dissolving the Recreation Commission and establishing a Recreation Board. The Board consisted of nine members: one member of City Council, one Public and one Separate School Board member, and four citizens nominated by the Nominating Committee of Council.
