The Hillside Beach Community Association (HBCA) is a non-profit, community-based organization that works to improve the experience of all residents in the Hillside Beach area. The HBCA provides direction and leadership for development of recreational activities and community spaces, including Charlie Wall Park, while promoting stewardship of the environment. The Hillside Beach Community Association, formerly known as the Hillside Beach Ratepayers Association, had its beginnings in the 1960’s. In 1998, when the Local Government Districts were redefined by the Province of Manitoba, the focus of the Association transitioned from representing the members’ needs to the elected government, to providing opportunities for community engagement, developing spaces for recreation and social connection, and facilitating the flow of important information to community members.
Over the years, the Hillside Beach Community Association has provided opportunities for recreational and social activities through the development of Charlie Wall Park and organizing events that bring the community together. The children’s playground, picnic shelter, basketball court, baseball diamond and soccer pitch have been made possible through the fund-raising and organizing efforts of the HBCA and the generosity of community residents and local businesses.
The HBCA provides many benefits to members of the Association. Please check out our Membership page, and consider joining us!
The HBCA has installed new bike racks throughout the Hillside Beach Community. Thanks to funding support from the RM of Alexander there are new bike racks at: Westshore Road, Pebble/Rocky Beach, Charlie Wall Park, and Belfast Road. Please note that these are BYOL (bring your own lock) racks.
HBCA Directors worked together for planning and installation. Thanks to this crew of volunteers.
For information regarding step repair to the beach, please contact the RM of Alexander.
Thank you to all community members who came to the Nature’s Calling event on June 24th and shared their ideas with us. With your help we are one step closer to enhancing the
existing trails and paths through the community. Thank you to the RM of Alexander for
supporting this effort with grant funds.
The trail update project is a multi-year project. We plan to enhance 8-10 existing trails in the
community this season with direction signs, access information and an Adopt a Trail community member. View the Adopt a Trail brochure.
15 nesting boxes will be ready to put up on the trails soon. Thanks to Rod Birch for preparing
the packages of nesting boxes during the winter for the HBCA. Thanks to Laurie Wasiuta for
volunteering time at the Nature’s Calling event.
The Trail Project committee invites members from our community to join us as we move forward on our project. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
