Ward 1 Parks Project: Haskayne Legacy Park
January 2016 Update - Designs are currently underway for the building and the park.
Transportation Infrastructure is leading the access road construction; road to be completed in 2016.
Haskayne Park was first conceived in 2006 as one of three ENMAX Legacy Parks. The overall site consists of two parcels on either side of Bearspaw Reservoir at the western City limits:
Bearspaw - 60 ha of relatively undisturbed natural landscape
Haskayne - 126 ha of parkland adjacent to the northeast bank of the Bow River, west of Tuscany
The vision for the site is to be a key piece within a green corridor extending from Calgary to Cochrane,
including Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park and a section of the TransCanada Trail. The CPR mainline runs through the site. On the south side of the tracks the park concept contains a waterfront facility that could include a concession / restaurant area along with water access for non-powered boating.
