Century Gardens

Century Gardens is an urban park located in Calgary's downtown core that was originally developed in 1975 to celebrate Calgary's Centennial. The Devonian Group donated the park land for the creation of a place of respite within the hustle and bustle of a busy downtown. Designed and built as an artistic expression of a landscape referred to as Brutalist; the fountains and water are symbolic of the area's mountains and rivers. The City recognizes this park and its unique features listing it in Calgary's inventory of evaluated historic resources. The park is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues and Seventh and Eighth Streets in the southwest quadrant of the city.

Notice: Stakeholder discussions pertaining to a potential Century Gardens redevelopment are underway.
