Haskayne Legacy Park development

Traditional western ranchlands come alive with spectacular mountain and prairie views at the site of the Haskayne Legacy Park, an greenspace in the northwest of Calgary that will provide ample natural landscapes for Calgarians to enjoy.

About the development

Located on the east side of the Bearspaw Reservoir, directly across from Bearspaw Legacy Park, Haskayne Legacy Park offers some of the most beautiful natural land kept viable by traditional western ranching practices. Spectacular views of the “prairie breaks” can be had from the wide bottomland.

The bulk of the 360-acre property was purchased under the ENMAX Parks Program, with the final purchase made possible by the kind generosity of the Haskayne family who personally donated over $5 million in land toward the new park.

Haskayne Park is nestled between an environmental reserve and a provincial park link, making it a very significant piece of parkland along the Cochrane-Calgary corridor of future park development. The new Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park, on the northern boundary of Haskayne, will protect a further 14 km of the Bow River's banks that feature wetlands, natural grasslands, rolling hills, wooded areas, trails and breathtaking mountain and river views.

Haskayne and Bearspaw Legacy Parks will be developed in concert early in the next decade.
