About the park
Established in 1935, redeveloped in 1992, and upgraded in 2008, Connaught Park is a beautifully designed space in the Beltline community. The new benches, tables, walkways, and plaza are open to the public.
A committee of representatives of the Beltline community, local businesses, and The City of Calgary Parks decided to retain Connaught Park's passive function, but to improve the park's quality to make it more attractive, to better serve local residents and shoppers, to provide space for events & public art, and to discourage the present negative use. The work was funded by the ENMAX Parks Program and is part of the City's plan to improve all of the parks in the Beltline.
