Parks planning, management and operations

The City is responsible for planning, managing and operating over 5,600 parks and open spaces and over 1,000 km of pathways throughout Calgary. We believe that green spaces are an essential part of our City's landscape and we're strongly committed to providing Calgarians with healthy, vibrant and sustainable green spaces.

What we do

Parks is responsible for:

Parks mission

We take our role as planner, protector, facilitator, educator and provider of parks and open spaces seriously.

The Open Space Plan outlines the management of Parks through specific policies, plans and procedures in land use, such as theOpen Space Policy. It provides broad direction for day-to-day procedures, as well as direction for decision-making on community plans, area redevelopment plans and development proposals.
