Several parks in Ward 11 were impacted by the June 2013 flood, including Sandy Beach/Britannia Slopes, the Weaselhead Flats, and Stanley Park. The City of Calgary Parks has made significant progress in the clean up and repair of these parks, and will continue this work throughout 2014.
Sandy Beach/Britannia Slopes
Clean up and pathway repair in the park are substantially complete; however, some areas remain closed. The planning, engineering and coordination necessary for river bank restoration, the rebuilding of pedestrian bridges and approved capital project work is ongoing. Regulatory approvals from other government agencies are also being obtained to allow work to proceed in the river. Please visit the Sandy Beach Park
page for information on the park.Stanley Park
Stanley Park has re-opened after the flood. The public was engaged throughout 2013 on redevelopment in the park, and a final design was presented last November to the community. Work is now being carried out to understand how flood mitigation measures can be incorporated into the design. For information on Stanley Park
and the redevelopment initiative, please visit the Stanley Park page.Weaselhead Flats
The park reopened in January 2014 after the Department of National Defence declared the park to be safe. Signs about the potential to find unexploded munitions have been erected in the park along with information about what citizens should do in the remote chance that this situation occurs. Due to safety issues, a damage assessment was not started until the park reopened. Clean-up and damage assessment are now occurring. Please visit the Weaselhead Flats
page for details on the park.
