Park features

The City of Calgary's acquisition of the former Klippert gravel pit presented an outstanding opportunity to restore the ecological integrity of the area, while at the same time enhancing the recreational and educational value of the east side of Bowmont Park.

The park, to be named for former Calgary Alderman Dale Hodges, will include stormwater wetlands, wildlife habitat, trails for cycling and walking, and lookout points across the scenic river valley.
