One of four pillars of the Flames Foundation for Life includes Rotary/Flames Park – a two acre oasis that includes a tots’ playground, team play area and quiet garden retreats surrounds the Ronald McDonald House. The house is a compassionate, safe and affordable home-away-from-home for out-of-town families whose children are in treatment at a Calgary hospital.
