The Sherwood Community Association was established in 2008 by a group of volunteer residents to create community led events around the year. Residents can sign up for a $25/year membership aimed at raising funds for such events. The most popular event in the community is the annual summer Multicultural Festival. They have introduced a new community garden set to open in 2017.
