In 2011, the recreation hall at Cypress Park crumbled under the weight of heavy snowfall and the park has since been without such a facility.
However, Friends of Cypress Hills has picked up the torch and taken on the task of building a new community centre.
Since its formation in 2003, the group has accomplished a variety of projects that enhance the park for visitors and residents alike. These projects  include such things as a childrens playground, the dock at Loch Leven, and the observatory which opened in 2011. The Friends have now undertaken the most ambitious project of all – building a community centre to replace the recreation hall.
August 19 marked the sod turning for the new hall. The Friends of Cypress Hills, cottage owners, park staff and visitors gathered for the event.
CEO of the Friends, Gerald Gartner, expressed appreciation for financial support received – from the Friends of Cypress Hills, Cabin Owners Association, area farmers and ranchers, RV owners, corporate sponsors and the general public. He noted the generous financial assistance given by Canadian Natural Resources.

It's official. What local residents already knew has now been officially decided – Maple Creek is Canada's Greatest Western Town.
The Western Horse Review magazine ran a contest to find out which community people feel best embraces its western heritage. Competing against 31 other communities, Maple Creek came out on top and earned the title last week.
According to Kari Siegfried, the magazine's marketing manager, a call for nominations for Canada's Greatest Western Town was put out on their social media and in their publication.
While it is unknown who nominated Maple Creek, Siegfried said the reason given for the nomination was, "The western spirit that's there all year round, and that was continued to be said throughout the voting process – that it's more than just a rodeo – it is a way of living in Maple Creek."
"I think it (the contest) was really successful. We had a lot of votes coming in, a lot of people were really excited about it. If the contest closed at midnight we had people at 12:15 asking who won this round?"
