The City of Calgary is planning for a new City cemetery. The new cemetery will be situated to the east of Ralph Klein Park in the southeast quadrant of Calgary.
The City held a public open house on Thursday, May 1, 2014 to present three different design concepts for the new cemetery and hear input and feedback from citizens on these designs. For those who weren’t able to attend the open house, an online survey was available to review and provide their input and feedback. The survey closed on June 1, 2014. Survey results will be available when the information is compiled.
About the new cemetery
The new cemetery will be the first new cemetery to be built by The City since 1940, when Queen’s Park Cemetery opened in Calgary’s northwest. Now, it’s time to start planning for the future to establish a new cemetery in southeast Calgary.
The new cemetery is expected to open in 2016, and is envisioned to be a contemporary public space that offers Calgarians a peaceful place to lay their loved ones to rest, pay their respects and connect with nature.
