Poetic Park

Officially opened May 22, 2013, this new downtown park was redeveloped from a gravel surface into the beautiful park space it is today.

About the park


The City of Calgary Parks worked with area community partners to transform this empty space into a park where Calgarians and visitors can engage in passive recreational activities, such as socializing, enjoying a good book, having lunch, or taking pleasure in the peace and tranquility offered by this great new park. The goal was to create an urban plaza with a unique identity and sense of place. This park also includes public art.​​​​​​

Address: 4 Ave. & 9 St. S.W.

Area: 50 ft. x 100 ft.
