In addition, the Marda Loop area has   served as a business revitalization area, enhancing the commercial areas of the   community.

The   community’s outdoor pool, tennis courts and two skating rinks (which become   beach volleyball courts in the summer) offer recreational opportunities to   residents. Various sports teams and a play group also operate through the   community association. The Community Centre is also used by a variety of outside   groups, ranging from catering groups who make use of the centre’s commercial   kitchen, to organizations such as the miniatures club, orchid society and doll   enthusiasts.
