Parks and open space in The Bridges

Murdoch Park
Murdoch Park
​​Murdoch Park is named after Calgary's first Mayor, George Murdoch. This 8.6 acre (3.5 hectare) park features a promenade, soccer fields, and toboggan run. A commemorative wall built with bricks from the former Calgary General Hospital and the new Bridgeland​​​​​ Riverside Community Centre also are located in Murdoch Park, which has become the new heart of the community.

McDougall Park is almost three acres (1.2 hectares) in size and provides areas for both relaxation and sports activities. A regional pathway runs through McDougall Park and leads to the LRT station and the city-wide pathway system.

General Plaza is located along 1st Avenue NE.  It provides a gathering place in front of the new retail businesses on General Avenue. McPherson and St. Matthew Squares offer areas to sit, read and visit for those living or working in the surrounding area.

Over 1,000 trees will be planted in all three phases of the project throughout the parks, squares and boulevards. Efforts have been made to protect or relocate existing vegetation wherever possible and to integrate it into the community's mature landscape.
