The Stony Mountain Community Association (SMCA) is a volunteer non-profit organization made up of area residents.
The SMCA was formed in 2007, and grew out of the Street Party Association who, since 2002, planned the Canada Day evening and Family Festival in Stony Mountain.
The SMCA was established to provide recreational and leisure activities for the area as well as support and structure for the different organizations in our area to work together on common goals.
The SMCA was inspired by the past successes of the Stony Mountain Community Club which was a volunteer group in the 1960's and 70's who led the development of the arena, toboggan hill, Centennial Park (since closed) and swimming pool (since closed) as well as many community events in Stony Mountain.
