Buckmaster Park area improvements

Project update - October 2022


Mobility improvements:

Our construction crews have taken advantage of the extended summer weather in recent months. We anticipate mobility improvements will be completed by early November if the mild weather continues.

These improvements include sidewalk and accessibility upgrades. This will allow residents to move around their community and help balance safety concerns related to the City's growth.

Other improvements, such as intersection and utility upgrades, will be further refined and implemented in 2023.

Timeline

  • Construction Phase 1 – Fall 2023
  • Construction Phase 2 – Spring 2023

Park improvements:

Once complete, Buckmaster Park itself will offer modernized park spaces, recreational programming, a safe and easy-to-explore layout, and improved community connections by activating 22 Avenue S.W.

Construction will begin next spring and is expected to be completed in autumn 2023. Calgarians will be able to enjoy the park throughout the year, however, areas under active construction will be temporarily closed so crews can work safely and efficiently.

We will ensure the community is kept up to date by sharing information through our communications channels.

Timeline

  • Contractor Onboarding – Winter 2022
  • Construction – Spring 2023
  • Completion – Fall 2023

About the project


The Buckmaster Park Area Improvements project builds on recommendations from the Bankview Planning & Development Committee and the “This is My Neighbourhood: Bankview” project.

The redevelopment of the Buckmaster Park area will highlight existing features and improve activity spaces to support play, gathering, and travel through the community.

The project will allow residents to move around their community with more ease and safety and will also activate lost spaces to create stronger community connections.

Your input

The City engaged stakeholders and the public to collect feedback on both 26 Avenue N.E. & Buckmaster Park over Summer 2021.

Due to COVID-19, most engagement were held virtually, resulting in 3,921 citizen visits to our Engage website and a total of 350 contributions. From this feedback, we compiled a What We Heard Report.

We learned about their concerns, which helped prioritize several infrastructure items near the Park including installing new sidewalks and improvements to get to and from Buckmaster Park.
