Ward 3 News: Park Closure in Panorama Hills

  • Share

Ward 3 official website

Due to a significant increase in conflict between denning coyotes and residents in Panorama Hills, The City is closing the entire green space, including the slope and pathway between Country Hills Boulevard NW and Hidden Creek Boulevard NW.

Parks had closed the pathway along the top of the escarpment near Panorama Hills Landing last Friday; however, visitors to the area have not been respecting the closures. 

The park space will be closed for at least one month, while City staff continue to monitor the area.  The area will reopen once The City, in partnership with Alberta Fish and Wildlife, deem it safe.

Citizens are reminded to please respect all marked closures around the city.  They are in place to protect the public and their pets, as well as the coyotes and other wildlife that also call Calgary home.

Coyotes are a vital part of a functional and healthy ecosystem in Calgary.  A diversity of wildlife in Calgary fosters more biodiversity in the city, which in turn helps our ecosystem better adapt and respond to stresses such as pest outbreaks or an extreme weather event.

The public are asked to please continue reporting concerns regarding coyotes through 311, and in an emergency situation where there is immediate danger, call 911. Please include the address or description of the location of the concern or sighting so City staff can visit the area to assess the situation.
