About the park
The park first opened on September 8, 1990 with a gazebo in the Grant MacEwan grove, where 90 trees were planted for his 90th birthday. The park then underwent a 11.9 million dollar renovation from 2014 - 2017.
As part of the Provincial Municipal Stimulus Program, Calgary Parks is embarking on a new construction project in Prairie Winds Park to provide drinking water to food truck vendors in the park.
This project will create several water hook-ups in the park for the vendors to connect to. Construction is expected to begin during summer 2021. Construction fencing will be in place with large open spaces are available for public use.
A work schedule will also be developed to ensure construction is avoided when important community events are occurring in the park. Additional information will be provided once construction timelines are confirmed.
