12 Mile Coulee development

12 Mile Coulee Natural Environment Park is a unique natural area in Calgary's northwest that provides ample opportunity for hiking, cycling, walking and running.

12 Mile Coulee Management Plan

The 12 Mile Coulee Management Plan was created with public and stakeholder input. This plan provides direction for the protection, development, and maintenance of 12 Mile Coulee to preserve the natural character of the landscape while providing quality recreational opportunities suitable for this type of park.

2019 projects

Slope stability

The goal of this project is to stabilize a slope on the west side of the coulee which has previously failed during heavy rain. Surface water runoff caused erosion leading to slope failures.

This slope stability project requires a pathway detour. More information will be available as details are finalized.

Regional Pathway

The regional pathway will be extended to improve connectivity between 12 Mile Coulee and the surrounding communities. Most of this work will occur on the existing trail that currently runs along the ridge of the coulee’s east side. The new, paved pathway connection will be 2.5 meters wide.

Access to the nearby off-leash area adjacent to the pathway will remain open as much as possible while work is underway. The off-leash area and trail will periodically be closed as required during construction, which will be underway from about April to July 2019.
