East Bowmont Park Improvement Project

East Bowmont Park is the site of a formal gravel pit that will be turned into a natural environment park. It will incorporate stormwater treatment for a large northwest Calgary drainage catchment. With an area of nearly 4500 hectares this project became a high priority as a stormwater quality retrofit project.

Our vision is to use stormwater to define the park's character. We want to show the habitats it creates and make the water treatment process visible. Our goal is to show the public how stormwater is managed and to inspire curiosity, questions, and enjoyment.

The Lead Artists of Watershed+ are heading up the concept development and Sans façon is the artist on the design team. A budget of $2,006,000 has been allocated for this project and it is expected to be completed in the spring of 2018.
