Skating at Bowness Park lagoon is open for Christmas Day! Along with skating, visitors can also enjoy the new central pedestrian area to sit and warm up by the new fire pits, as well as easier access to the lagoon.
It’s been a long process, particularly with Mother Nature throwing us some challenges - such as the June 2013 flood and the September 2014 snow storm. I am excited along with everyone else to once again enjoy this great park and be part of the memories that future generations will treasure.
Later in 2015, visitors can experience the new teahouse, which will feature a restaurant and market, Seasons of Bowness Park. See more at: http://www.calgarycitynews.com/2014/12/skating-at-bowness-park-to-open-for.html#sthash.M9P36XA4.dpuf
In February 2015, The City of Calgary and the Bowness Community Association will host a city-wide celebratory skating party, with brief speeches from The City of Calgary and Province of Alberta officials, as well as the local community.
All Calgarians will be invited to the skating party on February 7. Watch for details on the Bowness Park Redevelopment web page. Activities will include skating, a sleigh or wagon ride, local music, hot chocolate and refreshments. I look forward to seeing you there!
