Bridlewood Community Association
The Somerset and Bridlewood community association currently lacks a community center but remains active in programming. The grand historic Shawnessey Barn is used for community dances. The community also enjoys an excellent relationship with nearby Spruce Meadows and often makes use of their facilities for special events such as Canada Day celebrations.
The community is also closely tiers with neighboring Midnapore, where children can register for sports. Also in Midnapore is the new South Fish Creek recreation center, which offers a variety of recreational opportunities. Baseball diamonds and a waterpark can also be found in Somerset. The community association also works to address issues such as traffic concerns and is a member of the South Fish Creek Transportation Action Committee.
