About the park

The City of Calgary Parks worked with area stakeholders 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.​​​​​​
