  • Share

Ward 1 official websiteBowness Overflow Parking

Now that summer is officially here, Calgarians will be heading out to enjoy our beautiful Bowness Park with activities such as a picnicking, cooling off in the wading pool and spray park or enjoying a ride on a paddle boat provided by the park.
Did you know there is overflow parking for those busy holidays and weekends when finding parking can be difficult? Located in Baker Park just down the road, there’s even a shuttle bus during peak periods that will take you over to Bowness Park, which is ideal for large groups, such as wedding parties and BBQs. Bowness Overflow Parking Lot is located on Scenic Bow Road NW. The free shuttle runs from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Friday to Sunday.
The new overflow parking came out of residents’ parking concerns regarding congestion in an area near Bowness Park. Although there are approximately 550 parking stalls available on the park grounds, the City of Calgary Parks department knew it was essential to provide more parking options so everyone can enjoy a sunny afternoon at the Bowness Lagoon or Seasons Café.
