Since its inception, the Community Association has been very active in developing programs, activities, and events for the residents of Linden Woods, the most significant of which was persuading the City of Winnipeg and the Victoria Community Centre (our designated community centre at the time) to build a recreational facility within Linden Woods. Probably of equal importance was the development of our community newsletter, Linden Words, which is now in its fifteenth publication year.
Ongoing activities which have been developed over the years include the annual Christmas Craft Sale, the Linden Lights competition, Santa and the Wonderland Gang Christmas party, Come Wine With Us adult social, the curling Funspiel, and the community-wide Garage Sale. New in 2004, which we hope will be ongoing, are the Citizens On Patrol Program and the Linden Woods Run/Walk.
Other activities in past years, many of which ran for several years, include car rally, bike & blade rally, wine tasting, country fair, children's movie nights.
The constitution and by-laws of the Linden Woods Community Association were first proclaimed into force on November 26, 1990. Subsequent amendments were made in 1998, 1999, and 2006 to modify the structure of the Board, to change the fiscal year end, and to modify the quorum requirements.

The Linden Woods Community Association is governed by the same Board as the Linden Woods Community Centre as of March 2007.
The logo used on this web site was officially launched with the September 2004 issue of Linden Words. It was designed by Franciso Guarderas, a long-time resident of Linden Woods, who responded to our request for ideas for a new logo. It is symbolic of many things about Linden Woods (balls, trees, parks) and has a flexibility that permits use by all community organizations - Community Association, Community Foundation, and Community Centre. The logo is the property of the Linden Woods Community Association. Permission to use it should be obtained from the LWCA Board.
